Healthy Oatmeal Bars

I got the template for this recipe from a Food52 entry but made some tweaks to make it healthier and more of what I was craving on a cold Sunday afternoon.
Serves 6
  • 3 cups Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cups Splenda Baking blend (or sugar/brown sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp apple butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup egg whites/egg substitute
  • 1 cup almond milk(I used unsweetened vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 apple, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease an 8x8 pan
  3. In a large bowl mix together the oats, sugar/splenda, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
  4. In a second bowl mix together the applesauce, vanilla and eggs. Slowly whisk in the milk and then gradually whisk in the apple.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the oat mixture until fully incorporated.
  6. Stir in the raisins, apple (and any other fruit you want to add!)
  7. Spread into the pan and bake for 20-30 minutes.
  8. Slice and serve as desired.
