Quaker Homemade Oat Treats

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Katzen

I found this in a Quaker Oats flyer - it's so delicious!! I'm curious to try it again as the first time I made it, it didn't stick together in bars as I expected, it was more granola-y in clumps, but I have to try it again to make sure my measurements were correct. It's so delicious, a co-worker who doesn't like granola actually asked for the recipe because she liked it so much! I did use dried blueberries instead of the raisins.

These really are delicious! I see what you mean about clumping instead of bar-ing, so I played with the mixture a little bit to see if I could make them hold together. I made half a batch, and to that I added one egg and a bit of extra water and pressed it into a 9-inch pie pan. DS had a great time helping me pour in all the dried fruit, which for us became a mishmash of odds and ends we wanted to use up. The end product held up pretty well in bars, though next time I will make them in a square pan for ease of cutting. Thanks for posting a great toddler-friendly snack! Made for Veg*n Swap #20.
