Apple Oat Bar Recipe
While most desserts aren’t considered “healthy,” these Apple Oat Bars contain some healthy ingredients which supply fiber, antioxidants, and even a little protein. Using whole wheat flour gives the bars a nutty flavor, but in a pinch, white flour can be substituted. Another time, try substituting dried cranberries for the raisins. Although these bars are not fancy, they are good, and are sure to become a favorite.
