The apple oatmeal bars recipe

Ok, so get started by pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees. Line the inside of your 13 x 9 baking dish with foil and spritz with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Cut in 1 cup of butter (2 sticks, softened) and mix until nice and crumbly.

Making apple cinnamon oatmeal bars, layer apples on top of the oat mixture

Spread 1/2 of the crumb mixture onto the bottom of your foil lined baking dish, press lightly to cover the entire bottom. Add apple slices as the middle layer, spreading them out nice and even. Top the apples with the remaining crumb mixture, spreading this layer evenly over the top of the apples. DO NOT press it down.

Pour your 1/2 cup of melted butter evenly over the top of the dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Once they’re finished, allow them to cool for about an hour before attempting to remove the foil from the baking dish. Cut into 12 bars, or however many you want, and try these delicious apple oatmeal bars recipe with vanilla ice cream!
