Oatmeal White Chocolate Bars #SecretRecipeClub

Welcome to this month’s installment of the Secret Recipe Club!!  This month for my secret assignment I got to stalk the lovely Sally of Bewitching Kitchen.  Sally has been blogging since 2009 so to say she has an amazingly extensive recipe index to choose from would be an understatement!

When I came across Sally’s Oatmeal Fudge Bars I knew I had found the recipe to try!  Princess P has been asking for nothing but oatmeal for the past 2 weeks so adding some chocolate to it was a huge hit!

The only change I made from Sally’s original recipe was I used white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips & that was done simply because of what I had available in my pantry 🙂
YIELD: 8 large bars
INSPIRED BY: Bewitchin Kitchen
  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 & 1/4 cups light brown sugar, divided
  • 1 cup flour, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chocolate chips {I used white chocolate}
  • 1 egg
  • salt


  1. Heat your oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8 inch square baker with aluminum foil, allowing excess to hang over the edges of the pan. Grease foil; set pan aside.                
  2. Combine the oats, 1 cup of brown sugar, 3/4 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Melt 8 tablespoons of the butter and stir into the oat mixture until combined. Reserve 3/4 cup of the mixture for the topping. Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the bottom of the prepared pan and press into an even layer. Bake until light golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour.                
  3. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup flour, the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, and another small pinch of salt in a bowl. Set aside.                
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a large bowl, microwaving at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring after each. Let cool slightly. Add the egg and whisk until combined. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.                
  5. Pour the chocolate filling over the cooled crust and sprinkle with the reserved 3/4 cup oatmeal mixture. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Using the foil overhang, lift the bars from the pan and cut into squares. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

  1. Great choice, I love those bars, and so glad you picked them for your Reveal Day!

    Hope you are having a wonderful Monday, I’ve been browsing all the sites and it’s a great collection of recipes this month!

    1. Four years go by too quickly, I can hardly believe it, and to tell you the truth the other day I almost made a recipe thinking it would be a good blog post, and then realized it’s already blogged! 😉
