Apple Oat Bars

These are such a great breakfast snack and make a perfect make ahead breakfast for busy families!

I used the apple pie butter recipe for the filling but you can also use canned pureed fruit. The recipe is very simple and I hope you enjoy these fruity bars as much as we did!

Ingredients

1 cup of all purpose flour

1 cup quick cook rolled oats

2/3 cup of brown sugar or coconut sugar

1/4 tsp of baking powder

1/2 cup of butter

1 1/2 cups of apple butter or other fruit filling

Preheat the oven to 180, grease a baking tray and combine the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar and baking powder. Crumble and rub together in the bowl until it looks similar to the crumb topping for apple pie.

Set aside half a cup of this mixture and press remaining into the tray. Spread the apple butter on top of the pressed in mixture and sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top. Press down lightly.

Bake for 30-35mins. Cool, then slice into chunky bars!

Apple Butter Recipe

I made this super delicious apple butter recipe at the start of the week last week and used it in over 3 recipes! We had apple butter on banana bread, apple butter filled oat bars and oat muffins with apple butter as an ingredient. It was a real time saver and it was enjoyed by all the family. You can also spread it on toast, dip fruit in it, serve it with ice cream or even use it for pie filling! mmmm pie! πŸ˜‰

Below is the recipe for this super delish apple butter!

Ingredients

8 Large Granny Smith Apples

3 cups of apple juice

1 cups of sugar

1 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp of ground cloves

1/2 tsp of ground allspice

Peel and chop all the apples up and pop into a large pan with the remaining ingredients. Bring to a quick boil then lower to a simmer for 30mins, stir frequently and mash at the end. Store in a kilner type sealed jar in the fridge to use as needed. Enjoy!
