1/2 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 1/2 CupsÂ Rolled Oats
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Chocolate Chips or Chopped Chocolate (I used Dark Chocolate)
Preheat oven to 180Â°C. Line a 19x29cm baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
Place the honey, sugar and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.
Place the oats, cinnamon and chocolateÂ in a large bowl. Pour in the honey mixture and stir until well combined and theÂ mixture is evenly coated. The chocolate will meltÂ as you stir in the warm honey mixture.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared tray and flatten the surface with a spoon or the palm of your hand
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and set. Remove, set aside to cool completely then slice into bars and serve.
I found it better to cool the bar completely, slice into 12 bars and then refrigerate before eating.Â It stayed together well in the lunch boxes.Â This recipe is a new favourite.
I recently reviewed the recipe to see if Â I could reduce the amount of chocolate chips from 1 Cup to 3/4 Cup without compromising the flavour of the bars, and I think we like them even more now we have reduced the amount of chocolate, and the sweetness. Â Next time I may even try using 1/2 Cup of choc chips.
