Prep Time



Total Time






2 1/2
cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
cup packed brown sugar
teaspoon baking soda
cup butter or margarine, softened

  2. Mix oats, flour, brown sugar and baking soda in medium bowl; stir in butter. Reserve 1 cup of the oat mixture. Press remaining oat mixture in pan. Bake 10 minutes; cool 5 minutes.
  3. Stir brownie mix, pouch of chocolate syrup, water, oil and 1 egg for fudgelike brownies (or 2 eggs for cakelike brownies) in medium bowl, using spoon, until well blended. Stir in nuts. Carefully spread over baked layer; sprinkle with reserved oat mixture.
  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 2 hours. For brownies, cut into 8 rows by 5 rows. Store tightly covered.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Check your recipe when cooking with oats, and use the specific oat recommended. In some recipes, either type of oat can be used.
Did You Know...
Quick-cooking and old-fashioned rolled oats are interchangeable unless a recipe calls for a specific type. Instant oatmeal products, on the other hand, are not the same and should not be used for baking.
Storage tip
Keep brownies wrapped tightly with plastic wrap. For longer storage, wrap tightly with aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months.
Special Touch
Give brownies a new slant. Cut into diamond shapes by first cutting straight parallel lines 1 inch apart down the length of the pan, then cutting diagonal lines 1 inch apart across the straight cuts.
