Preheat Oven Coat an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Blend Oats In a blender, place 1 cup of old fashioned oats and blend until the oats turn to a flour-like consistency. Pour into a mixing bowl and add the additional 1 ½ cups oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
Mix Ingredients In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, applesauce, vanilla, almond milk, and honey.
Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients Mix the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir well.
Add Apples and Bake Fold in the grated apple. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool, Serve and Enjoy Allow to cool; cut into bars and serve.
Replace almond milk with cow’s milk or a non-dairy milk alternative (soy milk, etc.)

Oats are naturally gluten-free but may be crossed with gluten during processing. Look for ‘certified gluten-free’ for those with celiac disease
