These Apple Peanut Butter Bars are great for breakfast, lunch or snack. We have had them anytime of the day! I like these because it packs so many great ingredients in one square. Apples, eggs, peanut butter, oats, honey and cinnamon go oh so well together. I also think these are great before and after a workout. I don’t know the last time I bought granola bars. I don’t think I could ever do it again. After knowing how easy and nutritious it is to make them, and not to mention that they taste better!
Apple Peanut Butter Snack Bars
Makes 9-16 bars, depending on what size you cut them
These gluten-free snack bars are made with wholesome ingredients and are great for after-school snacking or can be a healthy lunch box treat. To make them nut-free, simply use sunflower seed butter in place of the peanut butter.
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup shredded apple (one medium apple)
1/4 cup peanut butter (try to get a brand with very few ingredients. I would say 3 or less)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 baking dish and set aside.
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Transfer the mixture to the baking dish and use the back of a wooden spoon or a spatula to press it down evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the edges are just barely browned. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
