7-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Peppermint Chunk Oatmeal Bars

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Y’all already know how festive I am, so even though I’ve been MIA for a month, ROVIKAPAPRIKA IS BACK FOR CHRISTMAS!! I hope you guys enjoy this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup of steel-cut oats
  • 3/8 cup of white chocolate peppermint chunks
  • 3/8 cup of semisweet dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 “eggs” (2 tbsp chia seeds + 6 tbsp water)
  • 8 dates
  • 1 container of unsweetened applesauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Soak the dates in hot water for five minutes as this will make it easier to blend. While it softens, combine the chia seeds and water in a small container. Once the dates are ready and the chia seed mixture is gelatinous, add them all in a food processor. Blend with vanilla extract and the applesauce until a smooth consistency is reached.

Mixing It All Together

Transfer the wet ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the oats, dark chocolate chips, and white chocolate peppermint chunks. Mix until everything is evenly incorporated.

Evenly spread the mixture in a glass baking pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Let it cool, and drizzle with melted dark chocolate chips and white chocolate peppermint chunks if desired!

Happy holidays!
