- 1 Cup quick cook oats
- 1 Cup rolled oats
- 2 Tablespoon chia seeds
- 1.5 teaspoon cinnamon
- 30 grams coconut oil or melted butter
- 1 cup apple purée or applesauce 260g
- 1-2 Tablespoon maple syrup or honey optional
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius or 375 Fahrenheit
In a medium bowl, mix the oats, chia seeds (if using) and cinnamon
Add the coconut oil or melted butter apple purée and egg (if usuing ), mix to combine
Line a baking tray (I use a 20 centimeter square cake tin)
Press the mix into the bottom of the baking dish so that it is an even layer, it should be around 1.5-2cm thick
Bake at 180 degrees celsius or 375 Fahrneheit for 25 mins, it should be firm to the touch but not hard
Cool and slice into squares
- These apple pie oat bars can be frozen in an airtight container for up to four months.
- For a softer bar use all quick cook oats
- If you use all traditional rolled oats the resulting bar is yummy but can be a little crumbly.
- Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing into bars or squares.
Ingredient notes and substitutions
- Egg/Chia seeds: You can use either an egg or chia seeds to bind this recipe
- Butter/oil: you can use either melted butter or melted coconut oil in this recipe.
- Oatmeal: I like to use a combination of both quick cook and traditional rolled oats, I find this gives these oat bars the best texture. You can make them with all quick cook oats or all traditional rolled oats.
- Applesauce: I use unsweetened apple sauce, apple purée or apple baby food can also be used.
