These cake-like brownies have a rich crunchy oat crust and a smooth homemade chocolate frosting. A packaged brownie mix makes the recipe easy to prepare. You can make it even easier by using canned frosting.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
  • FROSTING:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir in butter until combined. Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10-11 minutes or until puffed and edges are lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Spread batter over crust. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  3. For frosting, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Immediately stir in the confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons water and vanilla until smooth. Add remaining water; stir until smooth. Immediately spread over brownies. Cool on a wire rack until firm. Cut into bars. Yield: 3 dozen.

This is my all time favorite brownie recipe! I make them a lot for our youth group or church events and I never come home with left overs!

I would not substitute a canned frosting for the glaze the recipe calls for. Totally different textures. The homemade one is nice and thin--you don't want too much more richness on top of these brownies. They're yummy.
