1 cup plus 3 tablespoons flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup 6 ounces semi sweet choco chips
3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, soda and melted butter. Blend at low speed to form crumbs.
Press half the crumbs into bottom of an 11x9" pan; bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chips and pecans.
In a small bowl, blend caramel topping with remaining flour. Drizzle over the chips and nuts to cover.
Sprinkle remaining crumbs over caramel and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool. Chill covered for 1 to 2 hours and then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container.
