Oatmeal Brownies Recipe

Oatmeal Brownies Recipe

The recipe makes the most of a handy packaged brownie mix, so they're fast to fix. If you don't have the mini M&Ms, use chocolate chips instead. Our kids love these rich fudgy squares with a scoop of ice cream.—Jennifer Trenhaile, Emerson, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup M&M's minis
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, M&M's, flour, sugar, walnuts, baking soda and butter. Set aside 1 cup for topping. Pat the remaining mixture into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  • 2. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Spread over the crust. Sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 5 dozen.

"This is a big hit at our local volunteer fire department! After the first batch, it was immediately requested again. Now, I make two batches. However, I make two trays of brownies and only use one batch of oat topping and sprinkle over the top of the two trays. Elimating the bottom layer. Quick, easy and upgrades brownies to a new level of crunch. It is a winner!"

"I liked the ease of the recipe by using a boxed brownie mix. Next time I think I will try putting all the oat mixture on the bottom- as I would have liked that layer thicker."

"I made this recipe, but shortened steps. I made the brownie recipe and put all the the oatmeal, nut, brown sugar mixture all on the top. I didn't have the M - Ms. They still turned out delicious. I will probably make them that way again. I'm all for easy.

"Made these on Tuesday while snowed in and they turned out great! Left out the nuts and got many compliments on how good they are when I brought them into work today. They are disappearing quickly and I will definitely make these again since they are a hit at home and at the office! Thanks!"

"Made these, used chocolate chips instead of M&Ms and used old-fashioned oats instead of quick. Everybody loved them. The only thing I did different was I had to bake them 30 minutes longer! And even after 30 minutes extra baking time, they are still kind of gummy in the middle - but nobody is complaining cause they are very good."

"60 Servings can't be correct. I'd like to see the nutritional information with an accurate serving count. Sounds like a great low carb treat but the numbers may be skewed. I haven't made them yet thus the low rating."

"WAY TOO GOOD THESE WERE SURPRISELY EASY AND DELICIOUS... JUST ENOUGH CRISPINESS WITH THE OATMEAL MIXTURE. ESPECIALLY WONDERFUL WHEN YOU HEAT UP JUST A TOUCH AND TOP WITH WHIPPED CREAM OR ICE CREAM AND HOT FUDGE. I DID NOT HAVE M&M'S SO USED WHITE CHOC CHIPS AND USED WHOLE WHEAT PASTRY FLOUR AND REGULAR OATMEAL AND TURNED OUT GREAT. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER. PAT"

"Great brownies. You can easily play around with the add-ins. My kids love the mini M&M's but I have made them with white chocolate chips too. The only thing I omit are the nuts but that is only because I do not like nuts in my brownies. You will definitely want to give these a try."

"I have made this recipe 4 times, varying it each time w/ what I had on hand--everytime it was a HUGE hit at work. Found the min m n ms in candy aisle at Walmart (two cups per bag @ $2.50 bag) after using small containers from candy aisle first time. Substituted cinnamon chips for a Mexican brownie one time and did mini chips/coconut (instead of walnuts) another time. ALL recipes were HUGE hits at work. My husband made a template on parchment paper so I can cut this into 60 equal peices--once I cut them into 120 peices to "go further" for larger crowd. This will be a keeper in my recipe file."

"This was described as "heavenly" by the friend I gave these to on Valentine's Day. I used regular-sized chocolate chips instead of the M&M pieces. Substituted 1/2 of the oil called for by the brownie mix with applesauce; less fat and more moist. The pan didn't last long at our house. Will be making these again!"
