2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (divided)
2 cups old fashioned oats (not instant oatmeal)
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup melted butter (I use salted)
2 cups (12 oz package) semi sweet chocolate morsels
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup (12.25 oz jar) caramel ice cream topping
Combine 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in melted butter. Reserve 1 cup of mixture, press remaining into ungreased 13"x9" baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with morsels and walnuts. Combine caramel topping with remaining 1/3 cup flour, drizzle over base. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool in pan and cut into bars. Makes 2 1/2 dozen bars.
