I wanted an on-the-go oatmeal bar without the artificial ingredients of commercial bars. This is the base for the bars, a recipe easily modified to suit your own tastes.
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square pan.
Combine oats, brown sugar, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Whisk milk, eggs, canola oil, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl. Stir egg mixture into oats mixture until well combined; set aside until flavors blend, about 20 minutes. Spread oats mixture into prepared square pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, about 30 minutes.
