Our Caramel Oat Bars give our S’more Cookie Bars a run for the money. Creamy caramel and rich chocolate between two layers of crisp oatmeal cookie make these bars hard to resist. You can use any caramel sauce you like, or you can make your own with our simple recipe. These bars taste so decadent, but no one needs to know how easy they are to make. These do need time to cool in the refrigerator before cutting, so be sure you allow time for that.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes + cooling time
Yield: 20- 24 bars

2 cups Quick Cooking Oats
1 ¾ cups All Purpose Flour
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ tsp Salt
1 cup vegan butter, melted
2 ½ cups vegan semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
2 ½ cups vegan caramel sauce, slightly warmed so it is easy to spread


1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a 9 × 13 baking pan with parchment paper and lightly coat with a nonstick spray. Set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and melted butter. Mix until well combined and crumbly.

3. Pour half of the oat mixture into the pan and press down until it’s compact and covering the bottom of the pan.

4. Spread 2 cups of chocolate chips evenly over the oat mixture.

5. Carefully spread the caramel sauce over the chocolate chips until it covers the chocolate.

6. Pour the rest of the oat mixture over the caramel and spread out evenly. Make sure to cover all of the caramel and chocolate.

7. Scatter the remaining ½ cup of chocolate chips on top.

8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust has turned a golden brown.

9. Allow to cool completely on a rack and then put in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes before cutting into bard.
