Steel-cut oats in a ready-to-go breakfast bar. Lower your cholesterol and enjoy a nice treat in the morning or take it to go. My boys love it hot or cold, in a bowl or as a square, with milk or maple syrup. It's 5 stars for all of my family. My in-laws tried it and love it as well. Serve with additional maple syrup.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, oats, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, to desired chewiness, 10 to 20 minutes. Drain cooked oats in a colander and place them into a bowl.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch pie pan.

  • Whisk milk, egg, and maple syrup together in a bowl until frothy. Stir egg mixture into oats. Fold in dried fruit, nuts, canola oil, and cinnamon until batter is combined and pour into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and oatmeal has no liquid on top, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool before cutting into bars.

Cook's Notes:

You can use frozen or fresh fruit in place of the dried fruit, if you prefer.

The best steel-cut oats are usually organic or Irish oatmeal. The taste is hearty and the results are healthy.
