Pantry Staple – Honey Oat Bars

There are pantry staples. Then there are staples. Believe me – there is a difference!

Just like milk is to our cereal and spinach is to our salad, honey oat bars are a pantry staple that are always trying to sneak their way into the nearest biscuit tin, not waiting long to get gobbled up. (seriously, my sister and I could eat a whole tray of these in 1 sitting!)

You can use them to stir through your yoghurt, sprinkle on your ice-cream, and even make granola out of them by sprinkling the mixture over a baking tray and baking until nice and crispy!

The possibilities are diverse. endless. and delicious.

Another fab thing about this recipe is it is sooooooo quick and easy – think wet dry combine! (then eat mixture :P)

Did I mention they’re healthy?! (If you’re definition of healthy involves dry fruit, oats + whole-meal flour) Where you can always reduce the butter content for a more crumbly texture rather than gooey

Yes my friends… truly a win win win situation!
(the 3 wins standing for yummy, quick & easy, and healthy of course :P)

Get excited, because I know I am!
