Instructions

  1. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) a 9” square pan.

  2. In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, melt and stir together the butter, brown sugar, and syrup, cooking until the sugar has dissolved.

  3. Stir in the oats, flour, salt, and graham cracker crumbs.

  4. Press slightly more than half the mixture (about 330g) evenly into the prepared pan. Let cool completely.

  5. While the crust is cooling, preheat the oven to 350°F.

  6. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the crust, then the marshmallows.

  7. Top with the remaining crust mixture.

  8. Bake the bars for 15 to 20 minutes, until the crust is light gold and the marshmallows are puffed and lightly browned.

  9. Remove the bars from the oven and let them rest for 20 minutes, then cut into squares or rectangles while still slightly warm.

  10. Store completely cooled bars, well wrapped, at room temperature for up to four days; freeze for longer storage.
