"I was looking for something I could make ahead on weekends for a quick weekday breakfast and nothing I found was quite right so I made my own, using elements of others and adding things I love. I wrap them individually in foil and freeze, take one out the night before to thaw, then warm it in the toaster oven while I'm getting ready for work."
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish.
Mix milk, peanut butter, applesauce, egg, honey, apple, apricots, dates, and nuts together in a large bowl until well-combined. Stir in oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda until evenly distributed. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before cutting into 12 bars.
