Fudge Oatbars..

20160609_091826Someone on facebook shared a knock-off recipe for Starbucks’ Oat Fudge bars, and it looked so yummy, I had to try to tweak the recipe.  But, my one attempt at making dairy free sweetened condensed milk burned, and I didn’t have time to try again, so I tried it without and Hubby says he’d like to eat the whole pan. I think that means he likes them.

Melt together

  • 1/2cup coconut oil (or shortening)
  • 2cups chocolate chips
  • 3/4cup dairy free milk of choice

When smooth, add in 1 tsp of vanilla and set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, cream together

  • 3/4c white sugar
  • 3/4c brown sugar
  • 1c coconut oil (or shortening)
  • 1tsp vanilla

Stir in:

  • 1c fluff flour (equal parts any combination of tapioca, potato starch, white rice flour, arrowroot or cornstarch. – I usually pick 3)
  • 1c GEMS flour (or whole grain gf flours of choice.
  • 1tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 tsp guar or xanthan gum
  • 3c gluten free oats
  • 2Tbsp flax meal  (optional )

Spread 2/3 of the mixture in the bottom of a 9×13″ baking pan. Top with chocolate mixture. Sprinkle remaining third of the oat mixture overtop.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until golden.
