Apple Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Apple Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Apple oatmeal bar cookies are a healthier, kid-friendly cookie recipe. They are made with whole wheat flour and lots of applesauce to help keep them moist. The best part is they can be frozen so you can make up a batch at the beginning of the week and have fresh baked cookies on hand for when your kids come home from school!
Moms always want to give their children nutritious snacks that will not only fill them up but also satisfy their sweet tooth. Apple Oatmeal Bar Cookies fit this bill perfectly because they’re packed with wholesome ingredients like oats, applesauce, butter, brown sugar, eggs (for protein) and cinnamon (a natural anti-inflammatory). And since they contain no refined sugars or flours
