It’s true, these oat bars are Even Better Than Starbucks Oat Bars! Made with simple ingredients you can have a batch ready to enjoy in less than 30 minutes.
I have loved Starbuck Oat Bars for ever. They’re just SO delicious…oat-y, sweet and rich, but expensive when you end up buying one every time you grab a coffee. So I knew I had to find a recipe and make them at home, and that’s exactly what I did. I have tried and tested a few different oat bar recipes over the years, and I’ve finally ended up with a variation of them that we love! Now you can make these oat bars at home too.
These oat bars are made with the most simple ingredients, all of which you likely have in your pantry already. Quick oats, butter, brown sugar, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk…the combination is decadent!
They’re so simple to make too…with just a few minutes of prep, and 15 or so minutes of baking time, they’re ready to be cut into 25 bite-sized bars, or 15 bigger bars.
Delicious, chewy, and oat-y. These nut-free bars are perfect for lunch boxes, snacking and with your morning coffee or tea. Enjoy!
Oat Bar Recipe Tips:
These bars are a little crumbly. Just make sure to get the oat mixture batter patted down into the pan really well before baking. Patted down and right into the corners of the pan.
If you want to use less sugar, try using 1/3 cup of brown sugar.
