1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan; set aside.
Combine all oatmeal layer ingredients in bowl except butter. Cut in 2/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 1/4 cups crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumbs into prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes.
Combine 1/3 cup butter and chocolate in bowl. Microwave, stirring twice, 30-60 seconds or until chocolate is melted. Cool slightly.
Combine sugar, eggs, water and vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add melted chocolate mixture; continue beating until well mixed. Add 1 cup flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Drop chocolate mixture by tablespoonfuls over warm, partially baked crust. Carefully spread brownie layer evenly over crust; top with reserved crumb mixture.
Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are set. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely; cut into bars.
- The crust will puff up while baking and then settle when removed from oven.
- For fresh-from-the-oven fudginess, microwave individual cooled bars 5-10 seconds. Serve immediately.

I didn't grease the pan ~ big oops! They were impossible to get out, but they were yummy! It is hard to judge when they are cooked enough. A tad sweet too, but SO good! I'll definitely make again.
I made these for an office lunch meeting and received rave reviews. They're easy to make and taste great. The brownie center is an added bonus!
Just for the record, you can NEVER have too much buttery taste - as long as it's REAL butter!
