Very tasty! My uber-picky 12-year old even loves them, so I know that the toughest critic will enjoy these. For a crunchier bar, bake longer; for a chewier bar, bake less.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (such as M&M's®)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup flax seed meal

  • cup brown sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg

  • ½ cup honey

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Stir oats, milk chocolate pieces, flour, flax seed meal, brown sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the oat mixture.

  3. Whisk egg in a separate bowl until light and fluffy. Add honey, oil, and vanilla; whisk until well-combined. Pour egg mixture into the well in the oat mixture. Stir until evenly combined. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish; pat down and spread the mixture flat, leaving at least 1-inch of space between the mixture and the sides of the dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and set, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

These can also be made gluten-free by substituting gluten-free flour and 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum for the all-purpose flour. You can also replace the egg with an egg substitute, and the vegetable oil with canola oil.
