Oatmeal Bars

These oatmeal breakfast bars are mildly sweet and have a soft and moist texture because of the oatmeal. You can make these in advance - store them in the refrigerator, then heat them up when ready to eat. 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. I used an 8" x 8" baking dish. Recipe makes 8 bars. Serving size is 1 bar.

Yield/Servings: 8 Serving Size: 1/8 Total Cook/Prep time: 40 minutes


  • 1 cup Bisquick (Heart Smart version in the white box)
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (hulled
  • unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 ripe bananas (sliced into 1/2" pieces)
  • 1 apple (skin and core removed
  • cut into 1/2" pieces)


Preheat oven to 375

Spray a baking pan with cooking spray (8" x 8" or similar size)

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

Add the applesauce, yogurt and vanilla - mix to combine

Fold in the bananas, blueberries and apples

Spread the batter into the baking dish

Sprinkle another light dusting of cinnamon on the top

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
