Oatmeal fudge bars have been a favorite potluck recipe for generations.

Chocolate Oatfudge Bar Ingredients

If you’ve never had an oatmeal fudge bar, imagine eating a homemade oatmeal cookie sandwich with a smooth layer of chocolate fudge in the middle.

That’s what this recipe tastes like.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the best part.

If you’re not a peanut butter addict like me, there are plenty of alternative options for these bars, including almond butter, cashew butter, coconut butter, and even sun butter.

The recipe works with rolled oats, quick oats, or oat-free substitutes such as quinoa or spelled flakes.

I like to use dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips.Or try using white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for a twist.

Stir in rolled oats and salt. Transfer about two-thirds of this mixture to the prepared pan. Place a second sheet of parchment on top and press the oat mixture into the bottom of the pan as hard as you can.

Remove the second sheet of parchment.

In a new bowl, carefully melt the chocolate chips. (If you don’t know how to melt chocolate, see our chocolate-covered strawberries post.)

Stir in remaining ½ cup nut butter until smooth. Pour this rich chocolate-fudge mixture over the oatmeal crust in a baking pan.

Finally, sprinkle the remaining oat crumble over the chocolate layer and press down firmly with a fork or spoon.
