Prep Time

Cook Time
20 minutes


1 1/2 cups (375 ml) whole wheat flour
3 cups (750 ml) old rolled oats
1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon
1 cup (250 ml) brown sugar
3/4 cup (175 ml) butter, melted
1/2 cup (125 ml) full-fat vanilla yogurt
1 tbsp (15 ml) vanilla extract
1/4 cup (60 ml) chia seeds
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
  2. Place flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon into a medium-sized bowl and whisk together.
  3. In a large bowl, add brown sugar, melted butter, yogurt, vanilla, eggs and chia seeds. With an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, mix ingredients together until smooth.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated (it will be crumbly).
  5. Add chocolate chips and gently fold them in.
  6. Grease a 9x13 inch (23x33 cm) pan with a little bit of melted butter. Add dough and gently press it into the pan with your fingers to make sure it is evently distributed and level.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes at 350F (180C). Bars are done when a toothpick comes out clean (although if the bars are a little bit under-done that's ok! This makes for a moister bar!). Enjoy.
