Choc Orange Oat Bars

May, 2019

I was never a fan of the chocolate and orange combination (I hated Jaffas growing up). But then a few weeks ago I tried a chocolate and orange flapjack and it was so good I knew that I had to create my own recipe! These are so easy to make and are a great snack for work or school. They can keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks (or in the freezer for longer).
 

Choc Orange Oat Bars

Makes 8 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder

  • 2 tsp honey

  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil 

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tsp orange zest

  • 1/4 cup orange juice (1/2 orange)

  • 50g dark chocolate

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°c

  2. Add all ingredients except the dark chocolate in a bowl and mix to combine until the oats are coated

  3. Pour into a loaf pan lined with baking paper. Press down to even the mixture

  4. Bake for 15 minutes then set aside to cool

  5. Melt chocolate and drizzle over the loaf (tip: I melt the chocolate in a bowl and then transfer to a square of cling wrap. Twist to close and then at the bottom pierce a very small hole with the tip of a knife and voila, you have a piping bag!)

  6. Slice into 8 bars
