Baked Graham Cracker Squares with.......... Oats, Chocolate and Pecans!

One more incredible Dessert Bar to add to the list of favorite desserts.
This is an adaptation of a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. 
I'm part of a team that critiques and chooses magazine covers for a variety of magazines.
This was one of the magazine covers I picked. I felt that it would be proper to post one of the recipes.
I chose a Yummy recipe from the issue.

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 15"X10"X1" sheet pan lined with foil extending over all sides.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

24 Graham Cracker rectangles
1 1/2 C Rolled Oats
3/4 C Granulated Sugar
3/4 C Brown Sugar
3 TBS Flour
1 Egg, beaten
2/3 C Butter, melted
1 tsp Vanilla
2 C Chocolate Chips
1 C Coarsely chopped Pecans

Place all of the Graham Crackers in the pan, in a single layer.

In a medium mixing bowl, with a wooden spoon:
Granulated Sugar
Brown Sugar
Mix well.
Stir in, by hand with a wooden spoon:
Mix until combined.
Spread evenly over the Graham Crackers
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.

Sprinkle with Chocolate Chips and continue to bake for 1 minute.
Remove the pan from the oven to a cooling rack.
Spread out the melted chocolate with an offset spatula.
Sprinkle the top with the Pecans.
Allow the pan to cool completely on the rack.
Use the foil to lift it out of the pan, remove the foil and cut into squares to serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
