Need a bar that travels well? Try rich brownies that bake between layers of old-fashioned crunchy oats.

Ingredients

Base and Topping

2 1/2
cups quick-cooking or regular oats
3/4
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
3/4
cup butter or margarine, melted

Filling

4
oz unsweetened baking chocolate
2/3
cup butter or margarine
2
cups granulated sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
4
eggs
1 1/4
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon baking powder
1
teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix oats, 3/4 cup flour, the brown sugar and baking soda. Stir in melted 3/4 cup butter. Reserve 3/4 cup oat mixture for topping. Press remaining oat mixture in pan. Bake 10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in 3-quart saucepan, heat chocolate and 2/3 cup butter over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; remove from heat. Stir in granulated sugar, vanilla and eggs. Stir in 1 1/4 cups flour, the baking powder and salt.
  • 4 Spread batter over baked base. Sprinkle with reserved oat mixture. Bake about 30 minutes or until center is set and oat mixture turnes golden brown (do not overbake). Cool completely, about 2 hours. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

Unsweetened baking chocolate contains 50 to 58 percent cocoa butter. It's bitter in flavor and is used primarily in baking. Look for it in boxes in the baking aisle next to the chips.

To keep brownies longer, wrap tightly, label and freeze up to 6 months.
