Apple Oat Bar Recipe


As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, crisp apples start to appear in farmer’s markets, roadside stands, and grocery stores. While the apples are delicious on their own, fall is a perfect time to bake breads and desserts using apples. The following Apple Oat Bars are great served as a snack – they are very moist and flavorful. They are also great served in larger squares with a scoop of ice cream as a dessert. Although any type of apple is okay to use, some of the good cooking apples like Granny Smith add a little tartness to the bars. Jonathan, Golden Delicious, and Fuji are also good in these bars.

””
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.

2/3 cup brown sugar
