Introduction: Copy Cat Honey Oat Granola Bar


  • 2 1/2 cups Porridge oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
  • a pinch of Salt
  • 1/4 cup Any flavourless oil
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract/ essence


If you don't have honey, then use golden syrup

If you don't have caster sugar, then use any other sugar

If you don't have vanilla, then use cinnamon

If you don't have salt, leave it out


  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Mixing spoon
  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • Cooling rack
  • Oven
  • Blender/ smoothie maker

Step 1: Prep

Preheat your oven to 350 °/ 180 °C.

Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Step 2: Measure and Blitz the Oats

Put 2 cups of oats in the bowl leaving back 1/2 a cup.

Put the remaining 1/2 cup of oats into a blender/ smoothie maker.

Blitz the oats until they become a fine flour

Add oat flour to the mixing bowl

Step 3: Add the Rest of the Ingredients

Add the rest of the ingredients to the mixing bowl in the following order:

  1. Baking soda
  2. Sugar
  3. Salt
  4. Vanilla
  5. Oil
  6. Honey

This order allows you not to have to wash measuring utensils between uses and coating the measuring cup with oil allowed the honey to fall straight out after measuring.

Step 4: Mix and Put in Tray

Mix the ingredients until combined

Pour the mixture out into the baking tray

Step 5: Press and Bake

Using the back of the spoon or measuring cup, compress the mixture into the tray. If your tray is too large like mine, compress the edge until you have a half cm thick layer of the oat mixture in the pan.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until light golden brown.

Warning, because of the high sugar content this burns quickly and will taste bitter if overdone.

Step 6: Cut and Wait

Once baked remove from the oven and place the whole tray on a cooling rack or the top of the stove.

Cut into bar shapes straight away while the mix is still soft.

Wait until the bars are entirely cool before removing from the tray
