Chocolate Oatmeal Bars (Gluten Free)
Sometimes all you want is a delicious, chewy and gooey dessert bar. These Gluten Free Chocolate Oatmeal Bars definitely fit that description. Besides being made with gluten free ingredients, they also include healthy stuff like peanut butter, applesauce and oats.
I like to call these tasty treats my dessert bars for breakfast since they are an easy "take with you" bar that is healthier than a lot of breakfast choices. The chocolate chips give these bars the edge on being decadent which also makes them a healthy dessert choice.
And did I mention how easy these bars are to make? One bowl is all it takes to mix these up and no mixer required. They are then ready to pop in the oven and on the way to that tasty treat you have been waiting to enjoy!
*as with all gluten-free recipes, please double check your ingredients to make sure they are gluten free.
