Healthy Oats Bars

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great day.

I’m still on a journey of making baking treats that don’t contain as much sugar and this recipe was a combination of oat muffin recipes which I found online. As you can see, the mixture was very flapjack like so rather than adding more liquid I just put it into a flat baking tray to make these delicious oat bars. This recipe was a bit of an experiment for me and it turned out okay, not too sweet but very filling.

My top nutritional ingredient from these bars are the oats, a staple in most households and fairly cheap in the supermarket depending on the brand. Studies show that oats have many health benefits and are known to be one of the healthiest grains on earth. In the UK, many people do not consume enough fibre and oats are a great source of fibre which helps to keep the gut healthy and possibly reducing issues such as constipation.
