  • 1 (8 x 8 inch) baking pan
  • 1 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar lightly packed*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (or 1/2 teaspoon regular table salt)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or sub another milk
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup miniature chocolate chips (dark, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate)
  • 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil (or melted butter -- these are more crumbly with coconut oil and more sturdy with butter)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, add together the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Mix.

  3. Add in the milk, eggs, melted coconut oil or butter, and vanilla extract. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

  4. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan.

  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and allow to slightly cool. Cut and serve warm in bowls (they don't really hold form as bars too well and are meant to be eaten in bowls). If desired, pour some milk over the bars in the bowl -- so good!

Recipe Notes

*If you want sweeter oatmeal bars, add up to 2 tablespoons additional brown sugar.
