When you think of Oat bars what do you prefer: Chewy or crunchy, with or without nuts, chunky or smooth?

One thing I love about oat bars is how versatile they are. There are no limits to what you can put together which is why the flavour combinations of these oat bars is one of my absolute favorites.

This is a chewy bar filled with Hazelnuts, Almonds, Shredded coconut and 80% Dark Chocolate chips. Although it is fully loaded it calls for simple ingredients that are guaranteed to be in the house already.

Make it Healthy

Although most of the ingredients are healthy there are a few substitutions can be made to make them even safer in the nutrition department, especially if your trying to loose a few inches around the waist.

  • Substitute the brown sugar for maple syrup or coconut sugar. Coconut sugar will have a similar consistency to brown sugar.
  • Sub the butter for coconut oil which will give you good digestive fats instead.
  • Add flax seeds, chia seeds or hemp seeds for more packed in nutrients.

Storing Oat Bars

I suggest once they are cooled and cut to place them into an airtight container. They should last for up to a week outside of the fridge in moderate temperatures. For warmer temperatures the fridge would preferably be more ideal with the same time frame.

Yields12 Servings
Prep Time20 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time30 mins

 1 cup Quick Oats
 ½ cup Desiccated coconut
 1 cup Mixed hazelnuts and almonds
 1 cup Sultanas or Raisins
 2 tbsp Butter
 1 tbsp Brown Sugar (I used Dark)
 ¼ cup Honey
 ½ tsp Salt
  cup Semi Sweet Dark Chocolate Chips
 ½ tsp Vanilla essence

1

First, rough chop the nuts or pulse a few times in a food processor. Place the nuts, oats and desiccated coconut onto a large baking tray and bake at 400F/220C for 7 - 10 minutes (depending on the type of oven) or until the nuts are toasted.

Second, Heat a small pot on medium and put in the butter. Once the butter has melted add the brown sugar and honey. Stir until sugar has dissolved and liquid thickens then remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Last, Combine all ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. It should produce a sticky soft mixture. Pour into a lined baking dish (I used an 8 x 11 dish). with a piece of parchment paper on top, use a pan or cup to press the oat mix down until it compresses then place the dish in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.

Finally, remove from the fridge and cut into desired pieces.
