Nutty Oat Bars with Nutella

These came about because of yet another 'use by' date on some bran in my baking cupboard. My grandson is a Nutella fanatic, so we decided to make some bars using the bran, some oats and Nutella.

The base is a flapjack with bran and oats. Easy for K to make.

You need: 200g oats, 75g bran, 150g butter, 50g light demerara sugar, 4 tbspn honey, 5 tbspn chopped unsalted roasted peanuts and some Nutella.

Preheat oven 190C/gas 5

Melt the butter, sugar and honey in a pan over a low heat. remove from heat and add the oats and bran and mix well.
Spoon the mix into a brownie tin and flatten with a spoon. Bake for 20 mins.
Mark into 10 bars in the tin. Cool. When cold, melt some Nutella, enough to give a good layer on the bars, then sprinkle over the chopped peanuts. Leave to cool then keep in a sealed box.


Very rustic to look at, but very tasty. The hazelnut and cinnamon sticks were added by my grandson!
Nice oaty base, the soft Nutella and then the crunch of the peanuts. Good combination of textures.

Lovely, simple recipe and just ideal for restoring energy during a wander in the country in the good weather perhaps. I remain deeply impressed by your ability to spot items before they go out of date. I dread to think what might lurk at the back of my cupboards.
