All-Out Best Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

What you need: 

2 cups oats
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup milled flax or wheat germ
6 tablespoons brown sugar or raw sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup apple juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional
1/2 cup fat substitute (I use pureed avocados, but have also used bananas and raw peanut butter)
1/2 dried fruit, nuts, flavored chocolate/carob chips, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 9" x 13" pan. In a bowl, mix together oats, flour, flax, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. If using any type of liquid flavoring, add to apple juice.
2. Mix apple juice and fat substitute into dry ingredients. Batter will be sticky, and you might have to mix by hand in the end. Mix in fruit, nuts, and/or chips.
3. Press into pan and bake 30 minutes. Cool and cut. These store well in the fridge in plastic zip bags. Microwave one of these in the afternoon with a cup of are set!
VERY versatile and my kids love them.

really good recipe, and so versatile and forgiving, which is really great.  i think i would prefer mine with less flour and more oats so i think i'll play around with it next time.


This recipe looks really good, I'm going to try it next.  ;)
