Apple Oatmeal Bars 

It’s a new recipe for me. On a whim, I tried this recipe. I had some extra apples that needed to be eaten or used up, and it’s just that time of year when apple-anything is good. This recipe is a keeper and I’ll be using it a lot!

There’s a crumb bottom  – of which some crumbs are reserved for the top.

There’s a second layer – the apples. apple barsThe third layer is a sauce that is poured over the apples. apple barsThe fourth layer is the remaining crumbs.apple bars

Bake it at 350 for 25-35 minutes or until done.  Serve warm or cold. Serve plain, with a glass of  milk, or some cool whip or ice cream. Enjoy!

  1. Sounds like a quick Sunday morning breakfast to me, but can the recipe I cut the recipe in half; my husband won’t eat sweets. He more of a banana sandwich man.

  2. I am sure you can cut the recipe in half. OR you could make the recipe and then cut them into bars and put most of them in the freezer. Just take out what you need, one at a time. 🙂 I was thinking that some cream cheese in the apples would be good, too – maybe added to the sauce? But then, I do love all things cream cheese. 🙂
