       Heat oven to 350~F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil, letting
   ends extend above 2 sides of pan. Lightly grease foil. Mix oats, 1 cup
   flour and the sugar in a large bowl. Add butter and cut in with a pastry
   blenderor rub in with fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press
   half (about 1 1/4 cups) evenly over bottom of prepared pan. Bake 12-15
   minutes or until top looks dry and tiny cracks appear. Sprinkle with
   walnuts.
        Stir caramel topping and remaining 3 tablespoons flour in a medium
   size bowl until blended. Pour over nuts. Sprinkle with remaining oat
   mixture.  Bake 20-25 minutes longer until edges bubble slightly. Cool in
   pan on wire rack. Then, to make cutting easier, refrigerate 1 hour or until
   cold. Lift foil by ends onto cutting board. Peel off foil. Cut in bars.
