Yield: 9″ x 13″
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp (separated) all purpose flour
- 1 cup plus 1/3 cup (separated) quick oats
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup caramel sauce
1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
2 Stir together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the brown sugar, then the melted butter, then the coconut.
3 Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray, or spread with butter. Pat the dough into an even layer at the bottom of the pan.
4 Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Cover with the caramel sauce. Spread out into an even layer. In a small bowl, mix together 2 Tbsp of flour and 1/3 cup of oats. Sprinkle the flour oat mixture over the top of the caramel.
5 Put back in the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
6 Remove from oven and let cool first for 5 minutes. Cut into bar shapes. Then let cool an additional 20 to 30 minutes before serving. The bars will firm up a bit as they cool, though they should still be rather chewy.
