Ingredients

Crust and Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/3 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cut in 8 pieces
  • 3 large eggs

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees and line a 9X9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil so that it overhangs the edges. This will make it easy to remove the bars. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
  • To make the crust, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add melted butter and stir to combine.
  • Press half of mixture firmly into the pan. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, or until light brown. Cool.
  • To make the filling, whisk together flour, sugar, coffee granules, and salt in a bowl.
  • Place chocolate chips and butter cubes in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  • Whisk eggs into chocolate mixture. Stir in flour mixture.
  • Pour chocolate filling over cooled crust and top evenly with remaining oatmeal mixture.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
