Oatmeal chocolate chip squares

July 28, 2019

I have never been a fan of oatmeal as a meal and don’t get me started on overnight oats haha, just not my thing, but I do love baking with oats and I wanted to create a tasty oatmeal bar that would make a great grab and go breakfast. These oatmeal chocolate chip squares are for one, HUGE and taste so good, the chocolate chips are just enough to make them feel like a decadent treat! The recipe is simple to make with ingredients you likely have in the cupboard already, makes 9 large squares at 5 smart points each on WW freestyle.

  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x9 baking dish with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk the eggs with the brown sugar.
  3. Mix in the apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon, mix well then fold in mini chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter out into the baking dish and bake in the oven for approximately 35-40 minutes.
  6. Let cool, then use a knife to scrape around edges and remove the squares from the pan, I was able to remove as whole and then cut into 9 equal square.

    I baked these for my husband , he likes them because they are not overly sweet . And because of that , he thinks that he can have one before breakfast with his coffee .

    Looking forward to trying this oatmeal square recipe. I like that your recipes use “normal” ingredients that I usually have on hand.

    I will be making these tonight or tomorrow. I slowly scrolled down the ingredient list and breathed a sigh of relief because there was NO banana in the recipe- can’t stand those things! Thank you for simple recipes.

      Haha! You are not alone, I personally love banana’s but a lot don’t so I always make sure I have plenty of recipes without them 🙂 Hope you enjoy them!

    I loved these! I’m not a huge chocolate fan, so the small amount of mini chocolate chips was perfect. I wonder if I could substitute blueberries or chopped apples.

      Hi Karen, so glad you enjoyed them 🙂 Yes I think you could add in the fruit, for blueberries I’d suggest maybe frozen wild ones as they are smaller, large fresh ones might result in messy squares
