Apple Cinnamon Protein Oat Bars


Earlier in the week, I received a nice surprise in the mail from my friends at Quaker Oats.   Along with a thoughtful note wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day they also sent a pretty mason jar full of oats!

 Naturally I had to bake something really yummy with these oats and Apple Cinnamon Protein Oat Bars came to mind! While I know apples and cinnamon are more reminiscent of Fall, I was really craving the combination plus I love how it makes my house smell :)

I was given the oats as a gift but was not compensated in anyway for this post.
