An easy, chewy, oatmeal bar with chocolate! So simple, so delicious.

1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups oats
1/4 cup chopped nuts


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat an 8x8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a double boiler, melt together the first four ingredients. Add salt and vanilla, and then stir in oats and nuts. Press into prepared pan and bake for 12 minutes. When cool, cut into bars.

Chewy, chocolaty with nuts -

Chewy, chocolaty with nuts - how can you go wrong? Will definitely try this again.

Perfect amount of chocolaty goodness!

I expected to bite into dry wholegrain oats barely masquerading as a treat (AKA what my mother-in-law puts together). Instead I was delighted. It was sweet but not too sweet. Well balanced taste, plus great chewy texture. Satisfied my sweet tooth.
