Apple Oatmeal Bars
These healthy apple oatmeal bars are the perfect healthy sweet treat for breakfast! Top 'em with a litle yogurt (regular or coconut milk) and it's reminiscent of apple pie and ice cream!
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 3 tbsp applesauce
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
- 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 sliced apples
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients for base thoroughly.
Lightly grease a square baking dish (either 8x8 or 9x9) with either cooking spray or a little coconut oil. Press ingredients for the base into the dish and bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix ingredients for the topping. When base is done, add topping and press down into base. Bake for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and cut into 9 squares. Store in a container in the fridge.
