The chef at the Horizon organic café is the mastermind behind these knockout treats.
1 cup Horizon Organic unsalted butter, melted
2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 cup Horizon Organic whipping cream
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray or lightly grease a 13"x9" baking pan.
In a medium bowl combine melted butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, soda, salt and vanilla.
Lightly press half of the mixture in the prepared pan and bake until golden, about 12-15 minutes.
Meanwhile make caramel sauce: In a saucepan bring heavy cream to a simmer and whisk in corn syrup. Keep warm. In another heavy-bottomed saucepan heat granulated sugar over medium-high heat until sugar melts and begins to turn golden, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and carefully whisk in warm cream. Caution: Cream will sputter and burble when it hits the hot sugar.
When the pan of oat mixture has finished baking, remove pan from oven and sprinkle with chocolate and walnuts and then drizzle with 2/3 of caramel sauce. Crumble remaining oat mixture over top and drizzle with remaining caramel sauce.
Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Cool on a metal rack. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature for up to 1 week.
