Apple Cinnamon Oat Squares

I found this apple bar recipe on Whole Foods website, quite tasty and very moist.  I wrapped each individually in plastic and placed them in the freezer.  They defrost nicely overnight in the refrigerator and can be zapped in the microwave for a bit to warm.

Apple-Cinnamon Oat Squares

Serves 16

If you're always looking for a new way to eat oatmeal, how about on the go? You can enjoy these tasty squares warm, at room temperature or even cold for breakfast or a snack. They're simple to make ahead and keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator so you can grab and go throughout the week.


2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup raisins(I use cranberries)
1/2 cup ground flax seeds (not whole flax seeds)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 (about 1 pound) Pink Lady apples, cored and grated-( Use whatever apples you have.)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Transfer to a foil- or parchment paper-lined 9-inch square baking pan, press down and smooth out the top and bake until firm and golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool in pan; cut into squares and serve warm or at room temperature.
