This was a winner!!! Thanks for the recipe. I didn't have brownie mix with chocolate syrup, I just used what I had at the house and followed the directions on the box for the amounts of oil and water. I liked the amount of oatmeal, I would not lessen. I might consider adding butterscottchy chips to the oatmeal mixture, in a layer between it and the brownies. Yummy!!!

Wow these are really tasty! I omitted the nuts and baked in an 8x11 pan so I had to bake them about 8 extra minutes. Very chewy and fudgy treat. Thanks Chef Mommie!
