My favorite desserts are those that you don’t have to be an experienced baker to make. This chocolate & oat bar is perfect for the inexperienced baker.  I’m not the best baker in any way.  I love experimenting and making desserts that look like I know what I’m doing. I think this one does that!

With minimal ingredients, this chocolate & oat bar is not only delicious, it's easy to make.

What’s awesome with this recipe is that you can change it up and make it your own. Instead of using peanut butter, you can use almond butter or my favorite, sunflower butter! You can add nuts on top, shredded coconut, and anything else you’d like to add.

I love recipes that are versatile and let you be yourself. I also love recipes that don’t have a lot of ingredients! The only extra ingredient that we had to buy was the toffee bar. Click on the pictures after the recipe so you don’t have to make a trip to the grocery store.

 

Ingredients for your chocolate & oat bar:

1/2 cup of softened butter (1 stick)

1 cup of light brown sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 cups of oats

6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate

1 toffee bar

1/2 cup of peanut butter (chunky or creamy)

Steps:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  1. In an electric mixer, beat your butter, vanilla and brown sugar until it is fluffy and mixed thoroughly.
  2. Mix in your oats and salt. Spread this mixture evenly into your greased baking pan.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until light brown.
  4. Make the topping: using a double boil, heat your chocolate and peanut butter together, continuously mixing.
  5. Pour this chocolate & peanut butter mixture onto the cooked oats and spread evenly.
  6. Chop your toffee bar into tiny pieces and sprinkle over the bars.
  7. Refrigerate bars for about an hour or until set.
  8. Cut & serve!

*** Tips***

Double boil: Using a medium sauce pan that is filled half way with water, place heat on high so the water will boil. In another bowl that’ll fit on top of your pan, place your chocolate & peanut butter. This is a safer way to heat up your chocolate and peanut butter so it will not burn.

You can heat this mixture up in the microwave as well, just do it in increments of 20 seconds and stir continuously so it doesn’t burn.
