Easy Oat Bars

These easy Oat bars are just that!  EASY, but other than that the are very quick and very yummy and my kids love them.

Store brought or packaged muesli bars are not something we buy as most contain huge amounts of added sugar.

So my way around this is to make these delicious and easy oat bars, I normally make them plain, but that is just because I have a VERY fussy 5 year old.

But the options are endless for extra healthy additions to be added, I have made them before with added sunflower seeds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), chia seeds and cinnamon which  3 of us in the house LOVED!  but fussy 5 year old was not so keen on!!

These are great for school lunchboxes and snacks
