Fruited Lowfat Oatmeal Bars

Total Time
Prep 12 mins
Cook 25 mins

These oatmeal bars are sweetened mostly with fruit (and a little sugar). The fats are healthy and moderate, so these bars can be enjoyed by anyone likes to enjoy some "healthy" carbohydrates. I enjoy them with a cappuccino for my mid-day snack! If you don't have a 7x11 baking pan, you can use a 9x9 square pan.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325. Spray 7x11 or 9x9 pan with non-stick spray.

  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, adding in remaining fruits and optional nuts as you gently mix everything together.

Really tasty, pretty healthy and very substantial bars. They were a breeze to whip up. I used raisins and left out the nuts. Great for breakfast on the go. Thanks for posting the recipe.

I caught the review for this yesterday and thought these sounded great...yep, they are! Really yummy and quick to make. I used raisins and left out the nuts as the kids don't like nuts. I did do half whole wheat flour and half white flour as you indicated too and the texture was nice. I also changed to sugar to 1/4 C splenda and 1/4C sugar too with great results. Thanks for posting this, I will make it often.
