Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars


Ingredients:

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






Directions:

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.





NOTE:

*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.
