Porridge Bars

Oat Bars

It’s not been three weeks since I boarded the bus from Dublin and came back to Monaghan to partake in social distancing in a bid to flatten the curve of COVID-19. What a grand eye-opener this has been? I hope we all come out the other side of this being more grateful for the lives we have.

I saw a post on Facebook from DPD – “Have you even isolated if you haven’t baked?” It’s true. The whole country are baking and I’m delighted to see it.

I continued scrolling and came across a yummy recipe from Imelda Rose and Odlums for a no-bake traybake. I didn’t have all of the necessary ingredients but I improvised and came up with these yummies.

Hope you enjoy!

For the bars:
300g mini marshmallows
100g butter
3 tbsp Meridian peanut butter
300g oats

For the topping:
50g white chocolate
10g butter

Line an 8″ square cake tin with cling film.

Melt the marshmallows, butter and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.

Stir in the oats to form a thick and sticky mixture.

Press the mixture into the cake tin and set in the fridge.

Make the topping by melting the chocolate and butter in a mixing bowl over a pan of barely simmering water.

Spread the chocolate mixture over the bars and set back in the fridge.

Cut into 20 bars and store in the fridge.
