Random cravings are weird. I saw the box of rolled oats in the baking cupboard and instantly wanted applesauce oatmeal squares. Having never actually made oat bars before, I went looking for a recipe and found this one that originally uses strawberry jam. I wanted applesauce though, so I used applesauce for my oat bars (but I'll have to try it with jam because yum).
These applesauce oat bars are very easy to make (and they'll be even easier to eat). They're perfect as an afternoon snack or for breakfast : they are very filling ! They only require basic ingredients and one bowl (less dishes to wash – yay !). This recipe for applesauce oat bars is also egg-free.

  • Add in the butter and combine (using your fingers) until it forms crumbs.
  • In an 8x8in (20x20cm) pan covered in baking paper, spread a little over half of the mixture, and flatten it (using the bottom of a glass or your fingers) to form the base of the applesauce bars. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Take the pan out of the oven, spread the applesauce on the base, and sprinkle the rest of the mixture on top.
  • Bake for 35 minutes (at 150/180°C).
