Semi Sweet Oatmeal Bars

Ever since I posted this photo on Instagram, people have been asking me about these oatmeal bars and how to make’em

These bars are healthy and tasty. When I say semi sweet, I mean sugar free. When I say sugar free, I mean substituting it with honey. These home made bars will have you hooked.


Oats- 1 cup

Raisins- 1/4 cup

Dried cherries- 1/4 cup

Cashew nuts- 1/2 cup

Almonds- 1/2 cup

Walnuts- 1 cup

Dessicated Coconut- 1/2 cup

Flax seeds- 2 tbsp

Milk- 1 cup

Honey- 1/4 cup



  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C
  2. Chop the nuts into small pieces
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients together, leaving aside some of the coconut for later.
  4. Add in milk. It’s best to add it incrementally, half a cup at a time so it doesn’t become too much. You could skip the rest if you think it’s enough.
  5. Add honey. Mix the whole mixture thoroughly. You want the honey to reach all parts of the mix and bind the whole thing together.
  6. Taste the mix just a tiny bit. Add more honey if you’d like.
  7. Get a large pizza dish or bigger if you are making more.
  8. Line it with butter and a baking sheet.
  9. Transfer the mix into the dish. Really pushing it down and ensuring its flat.
  10. Sprinkle the remains of Dessicated coconut on top of the set bar mix.
  11. Place the dish in the oven, bringing the heat down to 120-125°C. You could adjust later as the mix starts changing color.
  12. Leave it to bake for 15-20 mins. Make sure you keep a good eye. Change sides if you feel the need to.
  13. Take out the dish when the mix has turned golden brown and is crispy from the top.
  14. Check if the bottom part os cooked too. If not, leave it in for 5 more minutes, this time, switching on just the bottom grill.
  15. Cut into pieces while the mixture is still hot. But leave it on the tray or they might break.
  16. Store in an air tight container for about 10 to 15 days.
  17. Enjoy
  • Makes 12-15 pieces
  • You could totally skip ingredients if you are allergic/not okay with them in general.
  • You could alter the quantity of the ingredients as per your preference.
