Everything Oatmeal Bake Bars – delicious and super healthy breakfast oatmeal bake bars, full of healthy and good for you ingredients.
Today I have a special recipe for you, one that I make often and love. To tell you the truth I never had a name for this oatmeal bake, I mostly just throw in a bunch of ingredients I find in my pantry. This is why I call it everything oatmeal bake bars. We love oatmeal and as you know oatmeal has a lot of health benefits. Although many times I make this the recipe varies, these are the main ingredients I usually use.
I remember the first time I made this hubs complained that I made so much and who was going to eat it all. Well let me tell you, that once he took a bite of it, it became his goto breakfast of choice. There are so many good things in this oatmeal, bananas, pumpkin puree, almonds, pecans, dried fruit, no oils or butter, just apple sauce and milk.
That’s why this oatmeal is so great, you can literally add anything you like to it, any dried fruit you like, this time I used dried apricots because I had a big bag full of them, but sometimes I’ll use raisins, or even cranberries. Can you tell how much I love this oatmeal? Yes, I’d probably prefer bacon and eggs but seriously, after I eat one of these bars, I feel real good and forget all about the eggs and bacon.
