Oat Bars with Dark Chocolate

Ingredients (makes 12)

350gr rolled oats

150gr honey

150gr sugar

150gr butter

zest of one orange or lemon

50gr dark chocolate

1 tbsp buter


In a saucepan, melt the butter. When melted, add the sugar and honey and allow it to come to boil for a few minutes so that the sugar and honey dissolve. Remove from the heat, add the zest and oats and mix well.

In a 20cm square tin lined with non-stick baking paper, pour the mixture and even it out on top. Bake at 150C for about 45 minutes. When taken out of the oven. Allow to cool completely before you take it out of the tin.

Invert onto a plat and take off the paper. There will be some honey on the bottom side of the bars but that’s normal for this recipe.

To make the chocolate, melt the chocolate with the butter on top of a pan with simmering water.

Spread the chocolate and allow to cool a bit. Cut in pieces and when the chocolate has gone cold you can wrap them up individually in fling foil.

    Your flapjacks look fantastic, Dimitra! Thank you making a recipe from my blog. I love that you dipped the flapjacks into melted dark chocolate, I’m definitely going to try that next time I make these. You have a lovely blog, I’m looking forward to reading it. 🙂

      The recipe is simply great! Even though I substituted golden syrup for honey and they turn out less like a flapjack and more like an oat bar (not so creamy and buttery as flapjacks) they are simply amazing and people keep asking me to make them again and again 🙂

      Thank you for your comment! It has been a pleasure 🙂
