Hello everyone! Chocolate Orange Baked Oat Bars for you today! These are a delicious healthier snack packed full of zesty orange and chocolate. These are more of a softer oats bar with a crisp outside. Think more of a soft flapjack, so easy and so delicious.
You can play around with the flavours of these Oat bars if you wish. You can definitely leave out the orange if you aren’t a fan. Switch things up and use some other ingredients too. You could add in some peanut butter instead of the orange. If you are doing this I would add about 4 tablespoons to the mix.
If you don’t want as many of these bars you can half the mix and bake them in a smaller tin, a loaf tin would work great! Or feel free to double up the recipe, they will last 3+ days in an airtight container. If you plan on freezing them make sure to wrap them up really well.
If you have any questions Dm me on Instagram. Happy Baking! <3 Keep an eye out on my Instagram for a Reel of me making these Chocolate Orange Baked Oat Bars ! Also, check out my facebook group ”Gills Bakes and Cakes <3”
