Gina’s Oatmeal Brownie Bars
(as seen on The Morning Blend January 14, 2013)
1 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
2 cups Flour
1 cup packed Light Brown Sugar
2 1/2 sticks room temp. Butter
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2 cups boxed Brownie Mix
1/3 cup Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and butter. Either use a fork to incorporate or just use hands to combine. Its ok if there are some chunks of butter, you are looking for no chunk bigger then a pea though.
Add in two cups of brownie mix, egg, and oil. Stir until just combined.
Using a prepared 9×13 baking dish, spread half of the oat/brownie mixture into dish and press firmly to flatten. You can add any type of filling at this point if you choose to, candy bars, chocolate fudge, Hershey’s syrup, etc.
Top with remaining oat/brownie mixture.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
Let cool, then cut into desired bar sizes.
