As you know, baking for me happens once in a blue moon and when I do, its usually just another rendition of my favourite banana cake/bread recipe. lol. But here we are trying something new and I will admit that these Organic Apple and Cinnamon Oat Bars are the perfect guilt-free indulgence for the week.
I absolutely loved the quality of red organic apples sent to me by GraigFarm.co.uk which you guys can get 10% off using my code ALEXIS10. They were so sweet, yet with a slight tang, I couldn't wait to use them and of course they cooked down beautifully.
These little scrumptious things are perfect for gatherings, in the kids or hubbies lunch box, or you could just have them all to yourself really like I did lol. If you want to learn this easy peasy recipe, please do keep scrolling.
