  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 16 bars 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 can (13.4 oz) Dulce de Leche


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sray a 9×9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer (or you can use a hand mixer) until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and mix until combined.
  3. Add baking soda, salt, flour until combined then add oats and mix on low until combined.
  4. Press half the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan (it won’t be a thick layer).
  5. Place dulce de leche in a small microwave safe bowl and heat about 45 seconds in the microwave, then stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the bars, keeping about a 1/4” border around the edges of the pan.
  6. Using your fingers, take small pieces of the remaining dough and flatten them slightly with your fingers and place them over the top of the dulce de leche.
  7. Bake for about 23 to 28 minutes, or until the top of the bars are barely golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.
