Chocolate Honey Oat Bars

My Favourite Bars

Chocolate Honey Oat Bars myfavouritepastime.comI made these bars some three months ago. I’ve finally managed to do the post so you can imagine how elated I am right now! They were sugary and addictive. I couldn’t stop eating. I remember waking up, one day, at 2.00 am and rushing downstairs to have another bar. I was so glad when they got finished, but I am thinking of making them again, soon. My life has been busy. What about you? The weather in Canada is rather cold for June but we do have lots of sunshine today. Have a wonderful weekend my friend. Yes I can’t wait for the weekend because I’ve had a very long week!

        1. I ate mine until the plate was empty. I didn’t freeze them. Oh boy it reminds me of Asterix and Obelix roasting wild boar…. enjoy the weekend
