  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar


  • 3 Tbsp coconut or olive oil (or a combination of the two!) melted/in liquid state
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk of your choice
  • stevia to taste
  • chopped chocolate or chocolate chips as desired


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
  • Stir in the wet ingredients until everything is well combined. I don't tend to mix these separate, I just add them right in!
  • Add in some stevia at this point, if you want the bars sweeter. I usually add 10-15 drops.
  • Spread the batter into a well-oiled 8 x 8 inch baking dish.
  • Top with as much chocolate as you like.
  • Bake 9-12 minutes, until top feels set to the touch. Don't overbake or it will be dry!
  • Cool, cut into bars, and enjoy your low sugar treat!
