This is a fairly healthy bar and is convenient when you have invited someone to your home because you can make these the night before and then just pop them into the oven in the morning.


*Can use plain yogurt in place of buttermilk



Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.

Combine sugar, brown sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat with mixer at low speed. Increase speed to high and beat well. Blend in eggs and buttermilk. Gradually add in flour mixture, stirring until just blended. Fold in apples. Pour into greased pan. Spread topping over top and wrap and refrigerate overnight.


The next morning preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover pan and let stand for 30 minutes. Bake for 45 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

It seems I'm the only quinoa fan in my family. Sometimes that causes me to have leftover quinoa hanging around. One way to get my family to enjoy some of this high fiber, vitamin-packed grain is to put it into breakfast bars. This recipe uses leftover or freshly cooked quinoa, and makes a great grab-and-go breakfast treat that everyone loves!

The consistency is that of a dense cake crossed with a muffin with a crispy top. I prefer mine to be very lightly sweetened, as my recipe follows. If you like things on the sweeter side, a little sprinkle of sugar (or your sweetener of choice) goes along nicely on top of this.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 16 bars


  • 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup any type of milk (I used almond)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a medium bowl, mix together the cooked quinoa, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, mash the banana with a fork until there are no lumps. Stir in the honey.
  3. Add the milk, egg, and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Pour dry mix into the wet mix and stir to combine.
  5. Fold in the blueberries.
  6. Lightly grease an 8x8 in. baking pan and pour mixture in evenly.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely, then cut into bars.

These are great for those mornings when you don't have time for a sit-down breakfast! They also make great after-school snacks for kids.

I am looking for an old recipe put out by Weight Watchers sometime in the 1970s or early 80s. I think it was called "peanut butter breakfast bars"? They were made using a slice or two of bread, which was torn up and put into a blend with peanut butter and most likely egg and maybe milk. Then poured into an 8x8 pan and baked and cut into squares. Sound familiar?
