Oat and Yogurt Bars

These delicious Oak and Yogurt Bars are quite soft and almost cake like, these bars taste good at any time of the day, as a snack, so you don't just have to stick to having them at breakfast time. They are also great to pop into your lunch box as healthy snack. You could add a small handful of chocolate chips to the mixture in step 3.

Makes 16 squares

175g/6 oz whole rolled oats
75g/2 3/4 oz soft brown sugar
50g/1 3/4 oz plain wholemeal flour
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground mixed spice
50g/ 1 3/4 oz walnut or pecan pieces
50g/ 1 3/4 oz dried apricots
4 tbsp olive oil
150g carton natural yogurt
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract


1) Lightly grease a 20cm/8 in square cake tin.

2) Preheat the oven to 180 C, Fan 165.C, Gas 4.

3) Put the oats into a large mixing bowl and stir in the sugar,
flour, seeds, baking powder and mixed spice, mixing well.

4) Roughly chop the nuts and apricots and stir them into the
oat mixture.

5) Whisk together the oil, yogurt, egg and vanilla. Stir the
liquid into the dry ingredients, mixing well.

6) Tip into the prepared tin, spreading the mixture to the
edges and levelling the surface.

7) Put into the hot oven and cook for about 25 minutes until
golden brown and set.

8) Leave to cool in the tin until quite firm, then, using a sharp
knife, mark and cut into squares. Carefully lift the pieces
onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

Enjoy :-)

      Thankyou very much. You'll have to let me know how you got on with it. I love cereal bars, once I have one I want another :-)

      Hi Nina. I am going to copy this recipe and give it a try, sounds delicious. Great idea to add Imperial weights as well as metric.
