I've been looking for recipes to use up my copious quanities of oats in my cupboard and came across this one on the Quaker site. It's very good, easy to make, and very portable!

I'm having a love affair with oatmeal right now! This turned out a bit more cake-y than I expected but it tastes great and is still plenty chewy. I added dried cranberries and dried cherries. Great as a breakfast bar, dessert and cookie.
