skinnymixer's Choc Chip Oat Bars

These choc chip oat bars are a great snack for lunchboxes and are a breeze to make in the Thermomix or Bimby. I use the Enjoy Life Foods choc chips because they are dairy free, but more importantly they are made in a dedicated nut and gluten-free facility – which is an awesome choice for people who have coeliacs or anaphalaxis.

You could easily adjust the ingredients in these to make different flavours, for example cinnamon and dried apple. I purposefully made these dairy free, which does change the texture of the bars compared to traditional ones – but feel free to add in butter if you wish. I hope you love them!

Love Nik xx

  1. These were a hit with my kids, thank god. They are so hard to please. I used honey instead of the sugar. Worked a treat. Can’t wait to try some other flavours! Thanks Nik!

  2. Totally love these bars. We adjust the ingredients and add coconut and apricot. Today we are trying cranberries coconut cinnamon and apricot. Love chewy bars and make these on a weekly basis in a double batch of course cause one is never enough. They keep the hunger at bay. Thanks Nic

  3. I love these, so delicious! I add 125g melted butter and use 70g brown sugar instead of coconut sugar. Thanks for the great recipe

  4. I cooked these last night and thought they were great! Kids have them in their lunch boxes today, so hoping they like them ( I reckon they will). Great snack… Next time I make them I’d add a little less sugar and thinking of adding some type of nut just to try something different! Thanks for a great recipe

  5. Normally I’m a fan of all Nik’s recipes but these ones disappointed. Kids didn’t like. I too wasn’t a fan. Didn’t like the texture. Expected a crunch. Was soft and rubbery.

    1. Yes agree! I made mine with added seeds, apricots and almonds and it was so chewy and cakey I couldn’t finish the bar. I’m hoping my 16 month old likes them but I find them really dense. Not sure if I did something wrong

    2. Agree, kids wouldn’t touch them but I didn’t expect them to. My non fussy husband didn’t like them . I hung on to them thinking I’d slowly work my way through them but just couldn’t do it. I fed them to the chooks.

  6. Didn’t add the sugar

    Reduced the chocolate to 50g cacao nibs, 50g raw pistachios, 20g sultanas, tbsp psyllium husk, 15g dessicated coconut, 15g chia seeds

    Turned out amazing ❤️ Thank you Nik for another fool proof recipe

  7. I was skeptical at first but these were really good! I used 100g milk choc chips and 50g dried cranberries.
    Thanks for another winner! xx

  8. Made these tonight for school lunchboxes and smoko snacks. So yum. Used brown sugar and normal milk as didn’t have coconut to hand. Still super yummy.

  9. I made a batch of this about a week ago and left it in a container in the fridge. I’ve eaten only 1 or 2 pieces; however had a look today and the container is almost empty!! Had a little chuckle to myself…obviously popular with my husband, who HATES sweets & desserts! Well done, Nik! 😝

  10. Love these for kids lunch boxes and soooooo quick and easy!
    Replaced half sugar with dextrose for a lower fructose option and used regular milk….
    Thanks Nik XXX

  11. Made these again today as they were such a winner the other week. Instead of choc chips (as our school has a very strict healthy eating policy), I used sultanas and this time, I added about a tablespoon of mixed spice! I also cook these in muffin trays so that Miss 8 can put them in her lunchbox! They taste really good with the added spice and give it a ‘sweet’ flavour and hence can use less sugar! Oh I also use quick oats as I had a box in the cupboard that I wanted to get rid of…

  12. Thought these were fab!! Added a handful of chopped almonds and cranberries for added flavour and texture. Another great recipe Nik😊

  13. These were a big hit in our house. I made them with 200g of butter in stead of the 3 eggs because I knew my family wouldn’t be keen on the texture. I drizzled the Choc on top because I didn’t have chips and it was lovely! It’s going to be a lunch box and after school favourite here!

    1. I’ve run out of eggs but have chia seeds on hand. I’ve placed 3 tablespoons of chia seeds and 9 tablespoons of water in a bowl, mixed well and I’ve got resting in the fridge. I did this with banana cake last week and it worked well. I’ll report back here when finished!

  14. These were okay… Great substance, but not a lot of flavour. I will make them again, but put a lot of fruit & spices through it for more flavour.

  15. These are delicious and my children love them. Not going to lie when I saw 3 eggs I was skeptical but they turned out great. Will definitely be a regular in this house. Thanks Nik

  16. Hi! I am making these today and think with my kids I should add some butter. How much butter would you add? I read above to replace the oil for butter but there is no oil in the recipe 🙂

  17. These are delish,daughter who screws her nose up at all the healthy food until she tries, loves them.
    Just made second batch and added some cranberries! Hopefully just as good!
