Ok - this is out of a really old cookbook (1967 - Pillsbury Bake Off) - but oh so good! how can you go wrong with oatmeal, brown sugar, chocolate, and caramel? Huh? Well, I haven't actually tasted it because it has to chill before I cut it - but you can't go wrong with these things...
1 cup flour
1 cup oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
3 T flour
Mix crust - half goes in bottom of 11x7 pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350. Top with chocolate then pecans. Then mix the topping and flour together - spread over the pecans and chocolate. Top with the other half crumbles of the crust.
Bake for another 17-20 minutes. Take out and chill for 1-2 hours, cut into bars. Serve room temperature.
They smell real yummy!
