Berry Baked Oatmeal Bars Recipe by Brittany Mullins

Ingredients For Baked Berry Oatmeal Bars + Common Substitutions:

  • Oats: Make sure you grab gluten-free oats if needed!
  • Maple syrup: You can also use honey.
  • Baking powder: To help the bars rise.
  • Cinnamon: For a little spice.
  • Salt: Just a pinch.
  • Almond milk: Like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any milk will work. Use whatever you have on hand.
  • Applesauce: Prefer using unsweetened applesauce. If you don’t have any applesauce on hand or are simply not a fan you can use 1/4 cup mashed banana instead of the applesauce.
  • Coconut oil: Butter will work too.
  • Vanilla: The perfect flavor enhancer.
  • Ground flaxseed: If you don’t have flaxseed, you can use 1 egg instead.
  • Berries: Both fresh and frozen work for this recipe, but prefer fresh because they don’t release as much liquid as frozen berries do. Used a blend of fresh blueberries and strawberries for this recipe, but any berries will work.

Storing & Serving:

Here’s what recommend:

  • Let the bars cool completely.: They can cool in the pan or on a wire rack if you want to speed up the process. Be patient and make sure they are 100% cool!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer: Place your cooled bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for 2-3 months.
  • Pop them in the toaster oven: You can absolutely eat these bars cold, but prefer to reheat them in a toaster oven before eating. The bars get a little crispy around the outside and perfectly heated throughout! You can also heat them up in the microwave. Just wrap in a damp paper towel and cook for 20-30 seconds or until warm.
