non-stick spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, melted butter, and vanilla

brown, 15 to 20 minutes.Allow to cool completely before cutting. Once it has cooled slightly, you can speed up

the process by placing the pan in the refrigerator.

Notes :

 

Place parchment paper or aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick spray on your pan. The caramel sauce will become

very sticky and try to stick to the pan.

Quick oatmeal can be substituted, but we prefer old-fashioned oatmeal for a chewier texture and finish.

Have the candies unwrapped and ready before starting the recipe.

You can also make the caramel sauce on the stove over low heat, stirring frequently until melted and smooth.For

variety, try other chip flavors like dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, or peanut butter.

Add chopped pecans, walnuts, peanuts or macadamia nuts.

Store completely cooled bars in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature for up to 5 days or in

the refrigerator for up to 8 days.
