Oatmeal On-the-Go Bars

A recipe tested by Jana & tasted by her daughter Annabelle! She replaced the usual large hen’s egg by 4 Queensland Quails eggs. Delicious! 
So don’t forget to pack a few of them in your children’s lunch box & yours!

Ingredients (makes 18 bars)
  • 2 Cups Oats
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk (any kind of milk — rice, almond, soy, cow’s — will work)
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 Cup Applesauce
  • 4 Queensland Quails eggs
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3/4 Cup Dried Fruit (Cranberries, Raisins, Blueberries, and/or Cherries)
  • 1/2 Cup Nuts (Walnuts, Sunflower Seeds, and/or Pepitas)

Preparation Method
  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Place the first 5 dry ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Mix the milk, applesauce, egg, honey, and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, stir to combine and then stir in the dried fruits and nuts.
  5. Pour the oatmeal mixture into a buttered or greased 7 x 11 inch baking dish.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until thickened and golden.
  7. Cool, cut into squares and serve.

Allow to cool, cut into squares and place in a zip lock bag to freeze up to 4 months. When ready, allow to defrost in fridge for 24-48 hours.

Refrigerating the bars will make them last up to 5 days.
