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.

Oatmeal chocolate chip squares

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 9
5SP blue, 6SP green, 4SP purple

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/3 cup oats (quick oats work fine)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9x9 baking dish with some non stick spray.
  • In a bowl whisk the eggs with the brown sugar.
  • Mix in the apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
  • Stir in flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon, mix well then fold in mini chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter out into the baking dish and bake in the oven for approximately 35-40 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Keep in sealed container, best stored in fridge or freezer after a couple days.

    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 made the oatmeal chocolate chip squares. They are absolutely delish! I cut them and wrapped individually and froze so I can have whenever. Thanks for the great recipe!

    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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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

    Can I use self rising flour instead of regular flour? If so, would I just use 1/2 tsp of baking powder instead of 2 tsp? Thanks!

      Yes you can, and yes 1/2-1 tsp of baking powder should be fine

    Do you think subbing almond flour would work for this recipe? Or oat flour (even though there’s already oats in it!)?

      Hi, I know almond flour bakes differently so I am not too sure, all I can suggest is to give it a go and see

    These are so good! I will definitely be making them frequently and will enjoy as a breakfast treat. I started WW around 2 months ago and just miss muffins and other baked things with my coffee:) Your recipes are so awesome. Thank you!

    So I made these today, I used almond milk instead and added some peanut butter. My family loved it but said it could be a bit sweeter. I was wondering what can I put? Thank you

      Hi Michelle, that all depends on if you are trying to keep the points the same, if not feel free to add in a bit more brown sugar, I keep it low to keep the points low, you could use a sugar replacement as well, I just avoid them as they don’t agree with me .. glad you all enjoyed them none the less πŸ™‚
