Lady Lynne took a batch of these no bake chocolate oatmeal bars over to my nieces when she was visiting them a couple of weekends ago.

Based on the same winning formula as my no bake almond oat bars with the addition of chocolate chips and still made with no refined or processed ingredients, these tasty morsels were soon being put through a set of rigorous tests.

  1. This is pretty much how I make my oatmeal bars too! It is crazy how many ingredients go in to store bought oatmeal bars – they are just full of junk.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      It’s sad that people can’t just spend 10 minutes making these instead, like you say, of buying those store bought ones!

      These are all natural and so much better for you. And, I think, tastier too! 😀

  2. O I can’t believe they are no bake <3 They look superb 😉 Too good…for only a moment, until I eat them all and need to make more!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ha Ha, that’s brilliant Rebecca. 🙂 Thanks, I’m glad you like them.

      Believe me it’s tempting not to eat these all in one go! When I was trialling them, I made them, tried one and put the rest in the freezer, away from temptation.

      But, that was also good because we then knew they were completely freezable too!

  3. Chewy, gooey, chocolatey, and sweet?!?! I’m sold! These look fantastic, Neil! And I love that they’re no bake because ain’t no one got time to wait 30 mins to enjoy something so tasty 😀

      Thanks Amanda, yeah these totally got a seal of approval from my little nieces.

      They’re pretty fussy kids, only liking some stuff I make, but when it came to these no bake bars, they seemed to go down pretty well for some reason. Must have been because they’re chewy, gooey, chocolately, and sweet 😉

  4. These look amazing! I need to try them and no baking is always a win.

      I’m a big fan of no baking Megan, not only because it’s so much less hassle but I love the idea of something being stuck in the fridge overnight and being there, ready for you in the morning!

      And it’s not like they’re going to burn or anything either is it? 😉

  5. NO BAKE recipes are a blessing and a curse… I think you know why! lol!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Yeah I do Gigi 😉

      I blame blogging. That’s where I found all about the culture and technique of no baking! Otherwise…..I would never have discovered it.

  6. I feel like these need to be microwaved and then served with some ice cream. Just saying.

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      No! I mean yes!! Yes, Yes! THAT is a FANTASTIC idea, lady!

      I never thought of that, Lynne is going to love that. Particularly because I’ve a whole stack of these to use up in the freezer, and your idea is so simple for our weekly Sunday pudding!

      Thank you! Awesome! 😀
