Happy Good Friday! Hope you're all enjoying a bank holiday in the sun and making the most of lazy mornings. I know I am!

Let’s start this by saying that I’ve never had a successful bread/dough bake. Ever. They’ve all been fails and it’s been something I’ve wanted to work on this year.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Oat Bars with Raw Date Caramel

Soft chocolate chip, gluten free oat base, with a thick layer of raw date caramel spread on top and drizzled with melted chocolate to finish.

Gluten free baking is always a challenge. But I think I’ve cracked it. The magic ingredient? Oats. For me, gluten free flour always has a gritty texture to it and oats seem to be that something special that disguises that grittiness.

The result is a soft vanilla oat base with chocolate chips mixed through. The oats make these bars more filling and the raw date caramel is the little sweet touch on top they need.

Oh and the smell of these little bars baking away in the oven is just delicious.
