Oatmeal Breakfast Bars
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Makesabout 2-1/2 dozen
Much better than I expected! My visiting daughters have a fridge upstairs and I didn’t see them until the afternoon because they had these bars for breakfast! They liked putting cream cheese on top. They said they’d like to try a little chocolate on top. Cutting with a buttered pizza cutter worked well. Don’t chop the walnuts too finely— the extra texture is good.
OMG how yummy are these. Not for the person trying to get a smaller waistline!!!! Wonderful and easy to put together.
Didn't have orange, so I used cherry jam. These were delicious and filling! I cooked them 15 minutes, cooled slightly before cutting, and they stayed together pretty well. Will definitely be making these again!
These are beyond quick and simple to make! My boys all love these and have even mad!e these by themselves!....I have 6 boys, that should say it all about these bars, lol...
In my recipe box for sure!
I added 1/2 cup wheat germ and reduced the coconut by 1/2 cup. I also added a 1/4 cup milk, and used some apricot preserves I had. I used brown sugar Splenda instead of brown sugar. Next time I will use a smaller pan and layered the batter, then the jam, then the batter again. Good breakfast.
I make this recipe often - can add sunflower seeds, wheat germ, dried cranberries, etc. to add nutritional value. Tried different flavor marmalades and jams - orange marmalade was by far the best and many jams didn't really work. Watch the baking time close - they get crispy fast. The crumbles are great for yogurt toppers (think McDonald's yogurt parfaits).
Yummy flavor, but they did fall apart. Kids didn't care for the marmalade, but the adults love it!
