We all skip breakfast occasionally, but make it a habit and you’ll soon be falling asleep at your desk. These warm, gooey, and filling breakfast oat bars taste just like a flapjack (without the added calories!). They’re really easy to make too. Once you’ve whipped up a batch over the weekend, your breakfast for the working week is sorted.

Breakfast oat bars slot neatly into your lunchbox, so even if you’re on the go, there’s no excuses for missing your morning fuel. Plus, there’s plenty of heavenly chocolate chips that just melt right in your mouth, setting you up for the most perfect day (if we do say so ourselves). And if you feel like something different for breakfast, you could always have one of these delicious bars as a snack.

How to make breakfast oat bars

  • Preheat oven to 180°
  • Line a square baking tray with parchment
