Peach Oatmeal Bars

These moist bars will work with any juicy fruit, so feel free to substitute if you don’t have peaches. Add stevia to taste or leave it out if you like your bars less sweet. If gluten is a concern, make sure your oats are certified gluten-free or perhaps experiment with quinoa flakes.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned or rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed or ground flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure stevia extract powder optional
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk I used vanilla soymilk
  • 2 peaches about 1 1/4 cups, peeled and diced
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 8×8- or 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper (this makes sure they don’t stick and makes clean-up a breeze).
  • Combine dry ingredients (oats through stevia) in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, making sure that they are thoroughly combined. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for about 25 minutes. If you’d like a crunchier top, put the pan under the broiler for a minute or two, watching carefully to make sure they don’t burn.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Remove from pan by lifting up parchment paper. Cut into 9 squares and enjoy.

Notes

One bar made with plain unsweetened soy milk (instead of vanilla) is 3 Smart points on Weight Watchers Freestyle program.
