It’s been so long since I’ve posted a recipe that you’d almost be fooled into believing that I don’t spend every spare moment of my day perusing books, magazines, and the web for new food ideas. The sad truth is, while I do rely on a few old stand-by recipes, my stomach has a bit of a wandering eye, and is always on the lookout for something it hasn’t tried before.
Although, I have to say, that’s not exactly the case here. It would seem that this time my stomach was looking to reconnect with a long lost love, one we used to bump into in coffee shops when my kids were babies and pushing a stroller around the neighbourhood was our only form of entertainment. At the time, any coffee bar worth its beans had a version of these oaty, fudgy delights, and while the babies were blissfully napping, we would rendezvous in a quiet corner and dream of the day when we could be together forever.
That day has finally come.
There are several versions of this recipe online, but this a slightly reworked version of the one found here.
Oat Fudge Bars:
Drop remaining oat mixture evenly over the chocolate layer. Don’t expect to have the chocolate completely covered, you want to leave some peeking through.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until topping is lightly browned. Cool in pan. Cut into 2″ x 2″ squares Since these are so dense and rich, I then cut these two inch squares in half to make triangles – feel free to eat two if you want!
