  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9" x 13" pan with foil, covering the bottom and sides.

  2. To make the crust: In a medium bowl, combine the oats, graham crackers, flour, brown sugar, and salt. Pour the melted butter over the oat mixture and mix until thoroughly combined. Measure out 3/4 cup of the mixture and set it aside for the topping.

  3. To make the filling: Whisk together all of the ingredients until well blended.

  4. Pat the crust mixture into the pan, pressing down firmly. Spread the filling over the crust, and sprinkle with the reserved crust mixture, plus the walnuts and toffee bits.

  5. Bake for 24 to 28 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack. Once cool, use the foil to lift the bars out of the pan for easier cutting.
