Recipe: Filler Bars aka: Maple Oatmeal Bars

Filler Bar Recipe: AKA Maple Oat Bars

I promised this recipe to a friend weeks ago and finally have gotten my head straight enough to type it up.  This is a quick and easy recipe for Oatmeal bars.  These are great snacks to keep you full in between meals.  Great to mix with high protein Greek Yogurt.

1 stick Butter (softened)
¾ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
3 cups Oats
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Baking soda
3 tablespoons applesauce

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats; mix well.  (Optional: add raisins, nuts, or fruit now.)
Roll out dough in cookie sheet about 1 cm thick. 
Bake 20-30 minutes until light golden brown.  Cut into 2"x2" squares.  Cool on wire rack.  Store tightly covered.  Makes ~40 servings.
