Do you have one of those “go to” recipes that you have used for years and years? My Homemade Oatmeal Bars From Scratch are a recipe like that for me.
With a large family like ours, these always come in handy. They are a family fave and so fun to make various versions for all likes and dislikes.
Whether I need a quick treat or breakfast, this recipe comes in handy for anytime of day or event. It’s a great way to warm up your house on a cool day, with the oven warm and toasty, too.
There are not any eggs (This is great for those who are sensitive to eggs) and it’s quick to mix up and bake. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now.
Meegan’s Homemade Oatmeal Bars From Scratch
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup raw oats
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup melted butter
Mix together with a fork until everything in covered and incorporated with the butter
Add in chocolate chips, chopped nuts, dried cranberries or raisins
Press into 9 inch square pan or pie dish.
Bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
I like to bake mine in a pie dish and serve them as triangle shapes, just for something a little different. But squares are just as nice.
Serve with a nice cold glass of milk for an afternoon snack or desert. My kids like to put them in a bowl and pour the milk over them for breakfast. They are the perfect sweetness, but not to sweet.
What I am saying is that you have got to try my Homemade Oatmeal Bars From Scratch. They will fast become a “go to” recipe for you, too. Enjoy!
