Double Chocolate Oat Bars

double chocolate oat bars

NOTE: Makes 1 dish 20 cm by 20 cm (8.5 inches square).1 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking).

Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Butter a baking dish and set aside.


1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate (70% coca0), chopped
1/2 cup Water, Ice Cold


In a bowl, mix together oats, flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Add the butter and cut in using a pastry blender or 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the dark chocolate, then the water, until the mixture comes together into a ball. At this point, you can either roll out the dough using a rolling pin until it is the size of the dish then fit it in the buttered dish, or you can place the dough directly in the dish and push it out with your hands (the end result will be a little more rustic).

Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from oven and let cool before slicing.
