Chewy Oatmeal Bars - Pinterest


I love trying new recipes. Ben loves granola so when I saw these bars on pinterest - I knew I was going to make them soon! These are healthy and not too sweet.

I used dried cranberries and dried blueberries for the dried fruits.  I also used slivered almonds.

Chewy Oatmeal Barsfrom marcigilbert 

  • 1 3/4 C rolled oats
  • ¼ C chopped walnuts (used slivered almonds)
  • 1/4 C sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 C dried fruits (half dried cranberries/half dried blueberries)
  • ¼ C brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ C milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In two separate bowls, mix dry ingredients, then wet ingredients. Pour wet into dry, mixing until combined.
  • Pour batter into a square baking dish lined with parchment paper for easy transferring. My dish is 9 x 9.
  • Bake 30 minutes. Once cool, cut into bars or squares.

I'm just discovering pinterest these days too, and it seems so entertaining. . . but like something I could get lost in for hours! These bars look like they'd be a nice breakfast treat. Do they keep well?
