Oatmeal Apple Bars

These are soft, moist, crumbly, and bland but not in a bad way.   They’re just mostly oatmeal and not your typical rich & sugary cookie bar.  It was a good way to use my green Gravensteins apples.


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 finely chopped apples (a food processor comes in handy here)

What I Did:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Beat the butter & sugar until creamy, add egg.
  • Add the vanilla, oats, apple, and dry ingredients.
  • Spread into a greased 9×13 inch pan, sprinkle with more cinnamon and drizzle with honey.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes.

Not quite a cake, not quite a cookie, not quite a granola bar!
