I have been in the mood for oatmeal, but not the kind that is hot and steamy in a bowl… I wanted a grab-n-go breakfast type of bar, and one that I could feed my 2-year old when we are out as breakfast or a good healthy snack.
As always, I began to put my basic ingredients together, added some fruits and nuts and here is the end result! A delicious, dense, no-sugar, natural and moist bar!!!
Blueberry-Raisin Oatmeal Bars
2 cups oats
3 extra-large egg whites (4 regular size)
1/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 tablespoons raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Dash of Salt
1. Mix all ingredients together, then add almonds, raisins and then fold in the blueberries, otherwise they may burst open
2. Place into a bread pan
3. Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes
These are not very sweet and are great with a little butter on top. I dabbed some natural honey and it was amazing!!

For the nut conscious: remove the nuts, or add whatever kind you like
For the fruities: Feel free to swap out the blueberries. Get creative and make something you enjoy
