We are always on the hunt for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. This one hits the nail right on the head. 

It is super simple to make, under 30 minutes, and the flavor is spot on. All you have to do is mix your ingredients, bake, and frost. Can’t get much easier!

Oh, and they are kid approved! My son loves to grab one of these as a mid afternoon snack or treat. Toss them in your freezer to extend the life and have them around for a quick snack attack fix.

Ingredients for easy oatmeal bars:

  • Rolled Oats– Rolled oats are what gives this recipe it’s classic oatmeal flavor. 
  • All Purpose Flour– Also referred to as white flour.
  • Baking Soda– A leavening agent that helps give lift to your baked good. 
  • Baking Powder– Also a leavening agent.
  • Salt– Salt is added to recipes as a flavor enhancer. 
  • Cinnamon– Cinnamon is key to giving this that classic flavor. 
  • Brown Sugar– Adds a slight rich molasses flavor to your bars.
  • Vanilla Extract– Use pure vanilla extract and not imitation.
  • Milk– We make this with regular 2% milk, however we have also used coconut and almond milk with success. 
  • Eggs– Large eggs at room temperature work best. 
  • Vanilla frosting– I recommend using this recipe, but any vanilla frosting will do. 

Difference between quick oats and rolled oats:

Rolled oats tend to be thicker than quick cut oats. This makes them perfect for creating granola bars. I have used both in this recipe. We prefer keeping it to rolled oats. This gives you a sturdy bar that tastes incredible.
