These are for Bob’s Christmas work lunch today. The recipe is from Pampered Chef. Looked like a whole pan of gooey goodness!
2 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 3/4 cups flour, divided
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup butterscotch or caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray. Combine oats, 1 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar and baking soda. Add melted butter and mix until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of pan. Bake 15 minutes.
2 Combine caramel topping and 1/4 cup flour, whisk until smooth. Drizzle over crust, carefully spreading to edges.
3 Combine pecans and reserved crumb mixture. Sprinkle crumb mixture and chocolate chips evenly over caramel mixture. Bake 15 – 18 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Cool completely before cutting into bars.
