Ahhhhhh!!!!! These are amazing!! They taste like a healthy apple crisp :) I heart baked apples and cinnamon!
I bought a ton of apples the other day and knew I wanted to do something apple-cinnamon-baked ish, and this is what I randomly threw together! It’s definitely a keeper.
Baked Apple Cinnamon Oat Bars
- 1.5 C whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 and 1/3 C oats
- 1/3 C walnuts
- 1/4 C ground flaxseed
- 1/4 C raisins
- 1/2 C brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 2 apples, chopped
- 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
- 1 C skim milk (or non-dairy substitute)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. In two separate bowls, mix dry and wet ingredients.
Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring until mixed. Add mixture to a non-stick or sprayed baking pan (mine was 7×11, but use whatever you like).
Don’t forget to add a sprinkle of raw oats on top to make it look pretty! (Clearly I forgot and threw them on last minute!)
Bake about 30 minutes, but fork check it once you get close to see when it’s ready! Mmmmmmmmm…
My mom is in town for a couple weeks for work, and she came over the other night just as these were coming out of the oven! We dove in immediately… mmm… warm baked apple pieces…
She was a big fan :) We couldn’t stop eating it!
The aftermath ;) These are going to make an awesome breakfast or afternoon power snack!
