Healthy Apple, Yogurt and Oat Breakfast Bars

by Shell

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain yogurt
55g unsalted butter, softened (1/4 cup)
2 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup plain flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup raisins (or blueberries)


Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F) and line a brownie pan with baking paper.

Stir together the oats and yogurt and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar together with a wooden spoon.

Add the egg and beat to combine. Stir in the applesauce. Mix in the yogurt oat mixture.

Stir in both flours, the cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt until just incorporated.

Mix through the apple and raisins gently.


Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 20 bars once cut.

I’ve tried them with mashed banana instead of some of the applesauce and put in frozen blueberries instead of the raisins. raspberry and white chocolate is also a winner in my book!
