I'm I have been craving chocolate and baked goods like no other. But I don't want to give in to all the cravings since I know how terrible commercially sold products can be! They are full of tons of sugar and sketchy trans fats! I'd much rather eat something more homemade and wholesome. So when I got home from work yesterday, I whipped up these delicious Chocolate Chip Oat Bars and they totally hit the spot!
I ordered gluten free oat flour in bulk a while ago, but haven't gotten a chance to use some of it! I decided to use it in this recipe to make it gluten free and bulk up the fiber a bit! The bars were so cake-like and soft, they tasted just like the coffee cake at Starbucks!!
This recipe makes 16 long bars that I cut out in a 9x12 baking dish! Enjoy!
2 cups oat flour
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
12 packets stevia (or equivalent of 1/2 cup sugar)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x12 baking dish, then set aside.
Mix all the ingredients together except for the chocolate chips, then fold those in at the end!
Pour mixture into the baking dish.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean!
Cut into 16 bars, then enjoy!! These tasted so good as an afternoon snack, and as breakfast this morning too! Chocolate chips for breakfast? YES please!
