Scotch Teas- BHG Gifts from Your Kitchen

This recipe is from BHG Gifts from Your Kitchen. It certainly sounds easy to make. I am curious about their texture, I wonder if they are like granola bars.
Scotch Teas
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
In medium saucepan combine butter and sugar. Cook and stir till sugar is blended. Stir in baking powder and salt. Add oars and mix thoroughly. Pour into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees 20 to 30 minutes. Cool; cut into bars. Makes 4 dozen

Hey, I just posted about this recipe (or ones like it), wondering what the baking powder does in a no-flour recipe?
I've made a similar cookie for years, and once it cools it's quite brittle, and yes, rather like the Nature Valley granola bars, not like the chewy kind.
Recently I've tried adding a quarter-cup of flour to the mix, which makes it chewier. The size of pan also makes a difference in texture.
