Most delicious, indulgent Gluten-Free Chocolate Mocha Oat Bars filled with chocolaty-mocha raisin filling. The gluten-free oat base is crispy and buttery, lightly sweetened and hinted with cinnamon. These coffee flavoured oat bars make for a delicious gluten-free snack or a special treat.

The chocolate mocha oat bars can be served at room temperature or chilled. I love the oat bars at room temperature because the inside is brimming with soft chocolate mocha filling sweetened with raisins making these gluten-free bars incredibly tasty.

If you want something more refreshing, especially on hot summer days, serve the chocolate mocha oat bars chilled. You can even add a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream. YUM!

The ingredients,

The ooey-gooey chocolate mocha filling is made with raisins, cocoa powder, coffee, vanilla and hot water. All the ingredients are blended into a thick paste. For the base and topping I used, oat flour, oats, coconut sugar, baking powder and a pinch of cinnamon.

The dry ingredients are mixed with butter forming a crispy base and toping. To make the filling extra chocolaty, before you add the topping, scatter the filling with chocolate chips. Once baked, the chocolate chips melt right into the filling, making these gluten-free bars especially delicious.

First, make sure your oat flour and oats are certified gluten-free, as oats are often processed in facilities that also process wheat. In the filling, you can change the raisins for dates or dried apricots. The flavour will be a little different, but the texture will remain the same.

As a sweetener in the base, I used coconut sugar. However, you can substitute brown sugar for the coconut sugar. For the chocolate chips, you can use a coarsely chopped gluten-free chocolate bar or bakers chocolate.

If you follow a vegan diet, you can substitute the butter for coconut oil or vegan butter, such as earth balance. When using coconut oil, add a pinch of salt to the recipe.

This gluten-free chocolate mocha oat bar recipe is not your typical oat bar. The chocolaty filling is flavoured with coffee and cocoa and is made with raisins. There are no added eggs, and the recipe is easily converted to a vegan oat bar.

Can you freeze the chocolate mocha oat bars?

The oat bars freeze beautifully. Use an airtight container and separate the bars with parchment paper. When you want to serve them, thaw the oat bars in the refrigerator, then bring them to room temperature or serve the bars chilled.
