Reviews for Apple-Oat Breakfast Treats
"I pressed the oatmeal mixture into a oblong baking dish, put the apple pie filling on top and baked it. Very good breakfast bar-not too sweet. Goes great with a cup of tea. Thanks for this great recipe!"
"I found this recipe when I had some extra apple pie filling to use up. These are a great cookie and they are so big that they would make a great breakfast for my kiddos. I will make this again and maybe try different flavors of pie filling or jam. The apple is wonderful but there are so many other delicious possibilites!!!"
