Healthy Oat Bars
Updated: Sep 15, 2020
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2-3/4 cup light brown sugar, use more for a sweeter cookie (I use only 1/2 cup)
1/4-1/2 cup granulated sugar, use more for a sweeter cookie (I use only 1/4 cup)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup melted coconut oil
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups dark Chocolate Chunks
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with butter or line with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the oatmeal, flour, whole wheat flour brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, salt, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until the dough is moist and all the ingredients are combined. The dough will be crumbly. Mix in the chocolate chunks.
Press the dough into the prepared baking dish. It will seem crumbly. Transfer to the oven and bake 18-20 minutes or until the edges are set and the bars are golden. Sprinkle with flaky salt (if desired). Let cool and then cut into bars.
