  • Combine applesauce and oatmeal in a bowl; mix until evenly moistened. Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer sticky, about 10 minutes.

  • Flip applesauce oatmeal onto a work surface. Cut into bite-size squares and allow to cool.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute the applesauce with any type of fruit puree.

Instead of greasing the baking dish, you can also line it with parchment paper.

Texture is great, but lacking flavour for an adult palette. Will try again with a little cinnamon/nutmeg or raisins. Read More

My family enjoyed my version of this recipe. I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon plus a little stevia based on other reviews. And I added a peeled chopped apple. I think you could easily substitute other fruits into this basic recipe. It is a great starting point! Read More

I had apple sauce left over from my yearly canning. I made a double batch and added a bit of cinnamon cut the squares after 10 minutes and put it back in the oven for another 20 minutes. Easy to make an healthy. I will make thesecagain and I think I ll add diced cranberries next time and maybe a bit f vanilla. Read More

I've made this recipe several times now, and it's so fun to add to. Recently I tried grated apple with 1 cup of apple sauce, and a quarter cup of slivered almonds, and pumpkin pie spice. I do add about 1/3 of a cup of Splenda for taste. I'm also going to try pureed canned butternut squash, as soon as I find some! It could also be good with a grated carrot! I like it chewy, but it could be baked longer for people who prefer crispy. I recommend a pizza cutter after it cools, to cut it up. Read More

A great starter recipe to add on to - I would never have thought of making these but glad I did. In the end, I used 3 c. spiced applesauce, 2 c. oats, 1 c. raisins, 1 c. walnuts, 1 c. chocolate chips and 1/2 c. super seed mix (flax, pumpkin etc.). Will make again as a quick breakfast snack.
