Butter Pecan Oat Bars

Butter Pecan Oat Bars

Diana Rattray
These are similar to the popular Revel Bars, but they're made easier with a cake mix. Make these delicious bars for a potluck, party, or weekend treat.


  • 6 ounces butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
  • 3/4 cup dark or light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 box (18 ounces) butter pecan cake mix
  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • **Filling**
  • 1 can (15 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Heat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9x13x2-inch baking pan.

Beat 6 ounces of butter with the brown sugar until light; beat in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Slowly beat in the cake mix and rolled oats until well blended.

In a saucepan, combine the sweetened condensed milk with chocolate chips, a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon butter. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans.

Spread about 2/3 of the cake batter in the prepared pan. Spoon filling over the cake layer and spread to cover. Pinch pieces of the remaining batter and arrange the pieces evenly over the filling.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until nicely browned and firm.

Absolutely FABULOUS!!!! :-), Member Patty9896

I read the recipe and thought hmmmmmmmmm, me thinks the husband would like these. That night he was looking for goodies and came across the container I put them in. He made himself a cup of coffee and after the first bite he was hooked. Words like killer recipe; man, these could hurt you; awesome, etc. My husband could not say enough about how good they are. The next day he took some to work and his buddy's loved them!! They hounded him for the recipe. I would have to say this one is a keeper and will be made again and again. The recipe was easy to follow.
