Baked Oatmeal Bars

Over the weekend, we had a big family cooking day with Zacky. I didn’t plan on it, but I had a bunch of Sunday meal prep recipes I wanted to tackle, the weather outside was crummy, and our little toddler is in love with his homemade learning tower where he can help mix and dump ingredients alongside me at the counter. We made a couple of things for the week, including these oatmeal bake bars for breakfast. Zacky had a blast helping and while my kitchen was an absolute disaster (and somehow I even found canned pumpkin stuck to places in my bedroom after), it was worth it for the time spent together and the good food we made. I just barely tweaked this original recipe, so head over there for the baking instructions.

Ingredients:

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1+ Tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

2c almond milk

1 egg

1 cup plain whole milk yogurt

1 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 cup coconut flakes

1/3 cup sugar

Instructions here.

We’ve been enjoying this all week for breakfast paired with some fruit and a hard boiled egg. Since we’re plowing through these bars I don’t think we’ll get the chance to freeze them, but I’m guessing they’d be great to freeze half and enjoy later (I cut ours into 10 bars).
