These are hands down my favorite baked good ever. EVER. My mom used to make these all the time and she'd have to fight my siblings and I off to keep us from eating all the components and the batter! So delicious!!
1 c flour
1 c quick oatmeal
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
3/4 c butter, melted
6 oz chocolate chips (I prefer the milk chocolate ones)
3/4 c caramel topping
3 T flour
1/2 c walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the first 6 ingredients together and press 1/2 of the mixture into a greased 8x8 pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips & nuts. Mix caramel topping with 3T flour then pour over the top of the chocolate and nuts.
Add the remaining 1/2 of the oatmeal mixture on top of that. Crumble it - don't press it in.
Bake for 14-20 minutes until the sides are bubbly and the top is nice and golden brown.
Let cool and cut.
