Oatmeal Bars - Beyond The Chicken Coop

Oatmeal Bars with an applesauce filling are simple to make and delicious for snacking. These bars are at all times a success with even the pickiest of eaters! Made with an oatmeal crust and an oatmeal crumb topping.
I began cleansing out my pantry final weekend. I discovered a number of jars of do-it-yourself applesauce I canned NULL years ago.
My youngsters don’t consume virtually the quantity of applesauce they used to eat. I decided to make  applesauce oatmeal bars to make use of up a few of that more applesauce.

These simple oatmeal bars had been a vast hit in my house. They disappeared earlier than I even knew it! I suppose I’m going to want to jump hiding my creations so they final just a little longer. Three teens can cross by meals like crazy! 
Another recipe I make utilizing applesauce is this Applesauce Cake!

What foods do I want to make oatmeal bars?

  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Oats
  • Applesauce
You can use any selection of oatmeal you've got on hand. I favor to make use of vintage formed oats in those bars incredibly than on the spot or one-minute oats. The vintage formed selection is thicker and provides first-rate texture to the bars.

You don’t want to have do-it-yourself applesauce to make those oatmeal bars. Any selection of applesauce will work. You simply want NULL cups for the recipe.
Another model of those bars are Raspberry Jam Bars and these Blueberry Bars. They are tremendous delicious too! The raspberry jam bars use jam because the filling and are simply as simple and as delicious as those applesauce bars. The blueberry bars use contemporary or frozen blueberries within the filling!

What if I don’t have a meals processor?

I blended this crust in a meals processor, but ought to you don’t have one I even have a couple of techniques for you. First, you'll be able to location the crust foods in a bowl and blend utilizing a mixer with beaters. Make sure the butter may well be very soft, but no longer melted.
Second you might blend along with your hands. Place foods in a bowl and use your fingers or your fingers to mix. This would possibly be just a little messy, but your fingers are truly a first-rate kitchen tool. Simply use your fingers to mash butter into the flour and oat mixture.
