oatmeal breakfast bars

This is another great base recipe for a variety breakfast bars. Just adding a fruit or a type nuts or both will bring a whole new experience to the table. It is also amazing without any added ingredients!

 

Main ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats
4-6 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/3 oat flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter or vegetable oil)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla

 

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients until just combined.

Let the mixture set 5-10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 8×8 baking dish.

When oven is preheated, pour the batter into the baking dish, making sure it spreads evenly.
