Apple pie oatmeal bars

Apple pie oatmeal barsThis is a pretty hearty slice. It’s perfect for after a run, on the go breakfast or my brother and Dad with their afternoon tea. You can make this your own with some different varieties of nuts, spices, flours and fruit. But it’s really cheap to buy the ingredients, simple to make, delicious and great to have on hand plus it freezes well!
