Chocolate Caramel Oatmeal Chewies

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine oats, 1 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in butter and mix until combined. Reserve 1 cup of the oat mixture in a small bowl. Press the remaining oat mixture in the bottom of the lined 9x13 baking dish.

Bake until golden brown, approximately 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. In a small bowl, mix caramel and remaining 1/4 cup flour. Drizzle caramel over chocolate chips to within 1/4 inch of the edges of the pan. Sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack for about an hour and then place in the refrigerator to allow for easier cutting.
