Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Bake Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 23 minutes
Servings: 10 bars


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup natural honey
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, light or dark both work fine here
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced into 5 pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9 inch square pan with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Spread your oats into an even layer on a medium sized baking sheet. Bake in the center of your preheated 350°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, pausing halfway to toss the oats. They won't look significantly different, but they'll have just started to brown along the edges. Transfer the oats to a large bowl, and set aside while you work on the wet ingredients.
  • For the wet ingredients, combine honey, brown sugar, butter, and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Place over medium-high heat, and heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture boils. Boil for about 1 minute, then set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  • Add the honey mixture to the oats (they'll both probably still be hot, but that's fine!) Mix together until combined.
  • Add your chocolate chips to the oat mixture, and stir to evenly distribute. Some of the chocolate chips will melt, but that's normal!
  • Pour the oat mixture into your parchment lined square pan. Using a spoon, cup, or your hands, press the mixture into the pan until packed together. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top, and gently press into the oat mixture.
  • Chill the oat bar mix in the fridge for 1 hour, or until firm enough to slice. Slice and serve!
