These Oat bars are fully loaded with nuts, raisins, chocolate chips and shredded coconut for a nutritious and delicious snack.

fully loaded oat bars

 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

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.
