Get started!


Oatmeal Layer

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

Brownie Layer

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch baking pan; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1/3 cup butter and chocolate in bowl. Microwave, stirring twice, 30-60 seconds or until chocolate is melted. Cool slightly.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine granulated 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.

  5. STEP 5

    Drop chocolate mixture by tablespoonfuls over warm, partially baked crust. Carefully spread brownie layer evenly over crust; top with reserved crumb mixture.

  6. STEP 6

    Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are set. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely; cut into bars.

Tip #1

The crust will puff up while baking and then settle when removed from oven.

Tip #2

For fresh-from-the-oven fudginess, microwave individual cooled bars 5-10 seconds. Serve immediately.
