I came across a recipe for Oatmeal Brownies.  i figure anything with oatmeal has got to be good.  Here's the recipe if you guys want to try it.

Oatmeal Brownies

Mix 2 1/2 cups oats. 3/4 cup flour,  3/4 cup brown sugar,  1/2 t. baking soda   Stir in 3/4 cup butter.  Reserve 1 cup of the mix for the top.  Press
 the rest into a 9 x 13 pan.  Bake 10 minutes at 350º.  Cool 5 minutes
Stir brownie mix (18.4 oz with chocolate syrup), syrup, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup oil, 1 egg.  spread over oat crust.  sprinkle with reserved topping. 
Bake 35 to 45 minutes at 350º.

If I have a brownie mix that doesn't have the syrup packet, I always have some Hershey's syrup on hand and use some of that.  I don't use an 
exact amount and it always comes out fine.  Probably about 1/4 cup would be what it is.

Be still my heart...a healthy brownie.

This sounds very good.
Have you ever tried making Carmalita Bars?  They are somewhat like this.

Here is the recipe for Oatmeal Carmalitas
2 Cups flour
2 Cups quick cooking oats..not instant
1 1/2 Cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup butter, melted
1 (12 ounce) package semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 Cup pecans or walnuts..toasted
1 Cup caramel ice cream topping
3 Tb flour
In a small bowl mix caramel topping and flour together until smooth. Set aside.
Pre heat oven to 350
Stir together the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl.  Add butter, stirring until mixture is crumbly. 
Set aside half the mixture (about 2 3/4 Cups).  Press remaining mixture into bottom of a lightly greased 13X9 pan. Sprinkle top evenly with chocolate chips and nuts.
Pour caramel mixture over the top of the chocolate chips and nuts.
Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over the top of the caramel topping mixture.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until light golden brown.
Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars.
These can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 week...haha like they would really last a week...Or freeze for up to 1 month (they might last in the freezer..tucked in the back, under a bag of Brussels sprouts!)

This is easier to remove from the pan if you line the pan with parchment.  Makes clean up so much easier as well.

Of course, Nancy.  I always add nuts even if the recipe doesn't say to.  They are good with pecans as that's how I make them.

I also forgot to mention, to make those brownies more healthy, I use oil instead of butter in the crust.  I do that in a lot of recipes and usually it
doesn't take as much oil as the amount of butter in the recipe

Oil?!?   Oil instead of butter !?! Surprised  I've never tried that ..... I've never even thought of it. 
How  does that affect  the taste?

Is this more something new I should try?

I KNOW the Carmalita Bars have to be tried !!!  lol lol

I noticed the Carmalita Bars call for melted butter.  To me, that's asking for oil but  I probably wouldn't use as much.
My mother's old brownie recipe that has 1 T Karo in it calls for butter. I use oil, but the first time I used as much oil as butter it was too oily. I now use half the amount and it is perfect.  I like to experiment with recipes.  That might come from taking an Experimental Foods class when I was in grad school.

An Experimental Foods class - how fun and exciting, Judy! I need to take one of those because I don't venture from a recipe at all, and if I mess something up it kills me to throw it out!!! lol

Me too Verlee --
I don't venture from a recipe any more than using Dark Chocolate when the recipe calls for Semi-Sweet.  
Currently I'm working hard on learning to venture but I'm taking small steps.

However ...  Wink ....97% of the things I bake are for other people ..... They can toss it out!!!
