Ingredients

  • 2 cups Rolled Oats old fashioned
  • 3/4 cup Bran
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Butterscotch Chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° f (180° c). Butter an 8-inch square pan, line with parchment paper, and butter parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Mix oats, bran, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl.
  3. In small bowl, beat two eggs together. Add eggs and applesauce to oat mixture, and stir until combined. Mix in chocolate and butterscotch chips.
  4. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until set and starting to brown. Let cool and then cut into bars.
  5. This recipe makes some delicious, gooey, chocolatey bars that are relatively healthy. Applesauce replaces any butter or oil a normal recipe might call for. The bars are a little chewy due to all the oats, but the bran is barely noticeable. And don't forget that oats and bran are really good for you! I made these bars to take for a breakfast that would keep me full until lunchtime (a nice change from oatmeal or fruit and yogurt), but i'm sure they would make a good afternoon or after-dinner snack too.
