Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars
Submitted By: Kath Eats Real Food
1.5 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup dried fruit (Suggestions: 1/4 cup cranberry trail mix, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/4 cup chopped dried "just banana" from TJ’s)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp kosher salt
1.25 cups skim milk
1 egg or egg substitute
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350*
Mix dry ingredients.
Mix wet ingredients.
Pour wet into dry. Stir to combine.
Pour into a 9×9 baking dish either coated in cooking spray or lined with parchment.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Cut into 9 squares.
*These are NOT crunchy like a granola bar. They are chewy like thick muffin.
*While delicious, the only sweetness in these comes from the dried fruit. Add in 1/4 - 1/2 cup brown sugar if you like.
*For leftovers, wrap each bar in plastic wrap and put them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. When ready to eat, just grab and go, or microwave for instant enjoyment.
