Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars

http://www.katheats.com/favorite-foods/baked-oatmeal-snack-bars

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts [or any nuts you like]
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (any you like – raisins, cranberries, dates, figs)
  • 1/4 cup seeds (any you like – sunflower, pumpkin, flax, sesame)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1.25 cups skim milk –* I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk. 1.23 cups skim =107.5 calories vs the almond milk = 50 calories
  • 1 egg- I used egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
    • I added a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Mix dry ingredients.
  3. Mix wet ingredients.
  4. Pour wet into dry. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour into a 9×9 baking dish either coated in cooking spray or lined with parchment.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Cut into 9 squares.

Makes 9 servings . Each bar is appx. 170 calories, 3 grams fiber and 5 grams protein. [Cut into 12 squares reduces calories to about 125 calories per square] plus I reduced the calories even more with my substitutions!!. You can add protein powder if you like as well.

Live Well.
