About this baked oatmeal recipe
These baked oatmeal bars have a slightly crispy edge and perfectly soft center. They are gluten free and low in sugar. Plus, you can make them dairy free by using almond milk vs. regular 2% milk. These bars are not very sweet, which I enjoy.
That said, if you want to sweeten them up, try milk chocolate chips versus dark chocolate chips. You can also drizzle these bars with a touch of honey or extra almond butter. I was able to get nine bars out of this recipe. Please see below for nutritional information. The nutritional information reflects the use of dark chocolate chunks in this recipe.
You can serve these baked oatmeal bars warm or at room temperature. They will taste so good no matter how you serve them. If you decide to warm them, simply microwave a bar for 10-15 seconds until it is warmed through.
Store these oatmeal bars covered at room temperature for three to four days. Option to heat these bars in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Looking for more delicious breakfast recipes? Try my blender chocolate muffins or my sweet potato turnovers with maple glaze. Both are great breakfast recipes that the entire family will love.
