Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares

Oatmeal on the go! These Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Squares are a perfect way to have yourself a fast-food breakfast while putting something healthy into your body at the same time. Not too sweet, yet not too bland, these squares are perfect for a quick breakfast or even just a mid-day snack.

I have had this recipe on my list to try for about a year now. I found it when I was on the hunt for a good homemade granola bar recipe that didn’t contain honey. I stumbled upon this one and it has now become a part of my daily breakfast ritual (and is likely alot fewer calories than a granola bar). If I don’t have time in the morning for my typical bowl of oatmeal, these squares do the trick and are portable so I can eat one as I’m walking to the train.

Steel Cut Oats Pecans

In my version of these squares I used Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats and replaced the Pink Lady Apples with the apples I had on hand, Golden Delicious. I’m interested in trying these again with dried cherries instead of raisins or pistachios instead of pecans…so many options for my next batch. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
