it's new blog layout day!!! so lets celebrate over oat fudge bars. these are my favourite starbucks treat, but as a baker i am embarrassed to admit how much i enjoy one. i decided to make my own from scratch and i haven't bought one since:) this is an easy recipe, just be patient enough to wait for them to cool completely before digging into! the fudge isn't a true fudge, its a very simple three ingredient mock fudge that is fail proof. you can use any kind of chocolate chips in this recipe, but i always bake with milk chococlate because, sugar. the oat layer also makes a great oatmeal cookie/bar if you wanted to eliminate the chocolate, but who the hell doesn't want chocolate fudge?


for the oats

  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

for the fudge

  • 1 can sweetended condensed milk
  • two cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees and begin with the oats layer.
  2. in the bowl of a stand mixer cream raw sugar, brown sugar, and butter together until light and fluffy.
  3. add eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla until combined.
  4. in a separate bowl, sift together flour, oats, baking soda and salt. add into mixing bowl until ingredients are welll combined.
  5. for the fudge layer, in a saucepan on low heat melt together the condensed milk, chocolate chips, butter, and vanila until smooth.
  6. to assemble, using a 9x13 greased baking pan spread 3/4 of the oat mixture to form a flat crust. pour the fudge mixture on top followed by dropping remaining spoonfuls of the oat mixture.
  7. bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges begin to lightly brown. let cool to room temperature [even easier to refridgerate] before slicing.
