Gooey Oat, Fruit & Nut Bars With Dark Chocolate

Gooey Oat, Fruit & Nut Bars With Dark Chocolate

These decadent gooey oat, fruit and nut bars with dark chocolate are a delicious baked treat on a buttery shortbread base. The topping is made by hand and comes together easily while the shortbread bakes. These are perfect for tea or to send to school for your kids.

The butter is browned to nutty perfection before adding two kinds of sugars to make the foundation of the caramel topping. The eggs help it set along with the raisins, chopped pecans and dark chocolate.

I love the slightly paper-like shiny top like you would see with brownies. This happens when the sugar and eggs are well mixed into the browned butter.

These gooey bars are very sweet so I used dark chocolate to help balance it out. Milk chocolate would be too sweet here. I chopped up half the pecan nuts quite finely so they get soaked into the caramel to thicken. You could use desiccated coconut if you were avoiding nuts.

Shortbread base
  • 175 grams flour cake or all-purpose
  • 200 grams cold salted butter cut into cubes
  • 50 grams sugar

  • 80 grams salted butter
  • 65 grams white sugar
  • 100 grams dark brown sugar
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • ¾ tsp vanilla extract
  • 70 grams rolled oats old fashioned not quick cook
  • 50 grams pecan nuts chopped a mix of fine and rough approx. 1/3 cup
  • 70 grams raisins 1/2 a cup
  • 65 grams dark chocolate chips or slab roughly chopped 70% cocoa (1/2 a cup)
  • Light sprinkle of sea salt flakes optional
  • Icing sugar to serve
