    Peyton&KaylansMama's Note:

    I took this out of my latest Easy Home Cooking magazine. It's a Quaker oatmeal recipe. I have been looking for an easy breakfast for my two little ones and this looks like a winner. I think any low fat yogurt would do nicely depending on the fruit you choose. Can't wait to try it!

      Great recipe! The Breakfast on the Go bars have become quite expensive. This is a wonderful substitute! I subbed 1 cup brown sugar and 1 whole egg, otherwise stuck to the recipe. I have also soaked 1 cup of the oatmeal in 1 cup water to make a softer texture, but DH prefers the more dense texture - I think because he can taste the oatmeal more in the softer one!!! When I had no yogurt on hand, I made instant pudding (small box) with 1 cup water (banana cream was all I had) and it worked fine. The only other change I made was to cut into 16 bars instead of 24.

      I really loved these. I was looking for something to make that could be a healthy snack for breakfast or after-school kind of thing. I took some in to my evening anatomy class to share and they all loved them. Easy to customize! I didn't quite have a full cup of raisins, so I threw in some dried sweetened cranberries, and a few snipped dates. I also added sunflower kernels. Would also probably be good with dried cherries. I didn't have any brown sugar, so I substituted white sugar plus about a teaspoon of molasses. Per a lot of the comments, I used a whole egg instead of egg whites. They're also not-too-sweet but not bland either. Nicely moist and chewy, and not messy! Would be a great snack to use for little kids too. --I just thought of another great addition-"yogurt" covered raisins.

      These oat bars make an easy breakfast and a healthy snack. They taste great and are soft and chewy. The recipe claims 24 bars but you are cutting them pretty small to get 24. This is an easy recipe to make.

      I make a few changes to suit my tastes. Instead of 1 1/2 cup of AP flour I use 1/2 cup of AP and 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour. Besides the benefits of whole grain it makes a more crumbly bar. Also, I reduce the granulated white sugar by 1/4 cup and reduce the brown sugar by 1/4 cup. The result is still plenty sweet for me. I also up the Cinnamon and vanilla by a bit, this recipe is just a tad bland otherwise (but still good).

      You can easily add variety to this recipe by changing the mix of dried fruit. Occasionally I'll add a 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips, which goes very good in this.

      I first ran across this recipe on the back of a Quaker Oats box, but alas it isn't there any longer so I'm glad the recipe is posted here. This is an easy and convenient way to include oats in your diet.

      ************************************************
      Edit. Recently I've been replacing all the sugar with 1/2 cup real maple syrup. It's just right for me. If you want to do it that way you might want to use a bit more syrup than I use.
