1 cup flour plus 3 tablespoons

1 cup quick cooking oats

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

12 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

6 oz. milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans

3/4 cup butterscotch topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 inch pan with foil.

Mix together 1 cup flour, oats, sugar, butter, salt and baking soda. Pat half of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan; it will be a very thin layer. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and nuts. Mix the butterscotch topping and the remaining flour and warm slightly over low heat. Drizzle over the top of the nuts and chocolate. Cover with remaining  oat/nut mixture. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely and cut into bars.
