Ingredients:  
1 c plus 3 tbsp flour
1 c quick cooking oats
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 c butter melted and cooled
1 c chocolate chips (I like milk chocolate but you can use any kind)
1/2 c chopped walnuts (can use pecans)
1 c coconut
3/4 c caramel ice cream topping

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. 1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, 1/2 cup of coconut and melted butter. Blend at low speed to form crumbs. 2. Press half the crumbs into the bottom of an 9 inch square cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and walnuts 3. In a small bowl, blend caramel topping with remaining flour. Drizzle over chips, rest of coconut, and nuts to cover. 4. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over caramel and bake for 15 to 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. Note - If you don't like coconut or walnuts don't make these cookies. The recipe won't work with out them. I like to serve them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel on top. I also don't wait the 2 hours to chill them!
