I love packing nutrition into foods in different ways.  Oatmeal is always a hit at our house, but sometimes a bar just feels like dessert (even when it isn’t).  So I tried to figure out a way to make a healthier bar and I came up with Apple Pie Oatmeal Protein Bars.

This is a great breakfast to go item – or even stick it in the lunch box!  You can easily make once a week, cut, place in baggies and store in the fridge.  It really cuts down on hectic morning times!

  1. This looks great! Is the oatmeal just dry oats or cooked? Thanks! Renee

  2. Do you mean 2 cups uncooked or cooked quinoa? If cooked about how much uncooked quinoa would be needed?

    • Heather says:

      2 cups cooked. So quinoa is a bit like rice…roughly 1 cup uncooked. I measured it after I cooked it 😉

  3. Hi! These sound great – are they very high in protein? What’s a serving size and what’s the amount of protein per serving? I’m on a high protein diet and always looking out for snacks that don’t taste like… well, snacks that actually taste like food!
