    I’ve made the peanut butter oatmeal bars and love them. I added some ground flax seed and craisins to mine. Husband enjoyed them and girls at work love them. I was surprised my husband liked them tried other ones but he didn’t like them said he could tell I didn’t add sugar. But these were just perfect. Made them several times now. I do have to say if baking in toaster oven to cut down on the time and temp some. I bake mine at 325 for about 10-12 min.

    Erin, I love this! These look so delish, I’m not sure which one I want to make first, but probably the oatmeal cherry bars, I love those 2 flavors mixed together. I’ll check the others out, but I’m kinda stuck on these now! Yum!

      Making them ahead of your delivery would be a super smart idea too. Then all you need to do is pull them from the freezer for a healthy snack for you and your toddler.

    Hi ERin, your timing couldn’t be more perfect. Need some snacks for Saturday’s Science Olympiad and this round up of bars gives me plenty of great options that will be tasty (for a bunch of high schoolers), but also healthy. Thanks for the compilation.

    Happy Day…Lynn

    We are big fans of oatmeal over here! And things that don’t come packaged. I can’t wait to try these! So many recipes, so little time. 🙂 Pinned and Yummed! (are you on yummly?)

    I love oatmeal bars Erin, especially when I’m really active and I need to get some extra good quality carbs in, oatmeal bars are one of my favorite picks. Always love your recipes, Erin. They always look super delicious!
