Apple-Oat Breakfast Treats Recipe

"Our three grandsons gobble up these soft, chewy oatmeal cookies at breakfast with some yogurt and a glass of juice," writes Dolores Kastello of Waukesha, Wisconsin. "If you don't have pie filling handy, use jam to make the cookie's fruity topping," she suggests.

"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!!!"
