Flourless Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

These Oaty Bars are Bob's favourite - they do not contain flour but loads of chocolate chips though. You will need:

80 grams butter, cubed
1/3 cup brown sugar
130 grams rolled oats
1-2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
50 grams fine desiccated coconut
100 grams chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line one 20x20 square cake tin with baking paper.
Blitz the oats ( not too fine – there should be some roughly broken oats) and set aside. Beat butter and sugar until creamy – add sweetened condensed milk and beat a little bit more to combine.  Fold in oats and chocolate chips. 

Spread the mixture in the prepared tin, put another sheet of baking paper on top and flatten the surface with either potato masher or the bottom of another identical square tin. If you use the square tin, the surface will be more level. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. If you want the bars thin and crispy, divide the mixture into 2 pans and bake for 12-15 minutes.

Leave to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting into 8 bars. Cool completely on lining paper on the wire rack. Store in an air-tight container.
