Oatmeal Bars

These oatmeal bars are very easy to make. They have a very soft gooey texture because of the oatmeal. You can make these in advance - store them in the refrigerator, then heat them up. But they are best if you eat them the day you make them. If I'm on the go, I'll pack this up with a hard boiled egg or some fruit. For the apples in this recipe, Granny Smith is good or another type of baking apple. Recipe makes 8 bars using an 8" x 8" square pan.

Total Cook/Prep time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bisquick (Heart-healthy version in the white box)
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (I like Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (raw if possible)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 small container Fage fat-free Greek yogurt (6 oz. container)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 2 bananas (sliced into 1/2" pieces)
  • 1 apple (skin on
  • cut into 1/2" pieces)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375

Spray a baking pan with cooking spray (8" x 8" if you have that size - otherwise something close to that)

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl (Bisquick, rolled oats, cinnamon and sunflower seeds)

Add the applesauce, yogurt and vanilla - mix to combine

Add in the bananas, blueberries and apples - mix to incorporate it into the batter

Spread the batter into the baking pan

Sprinkle another light dusting of cinnamon on the top

Bake for 30 minutes

Allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes

Slice into 8 peices and use a spatula to lift each bar out of the pan

Whoever is making this recipe I hope you have an awesome day.
