Savory oat bars

An easy-to-make snack for picnics, travel, or any time! You can change up the vegetable used in this recipe (think grated carrot, zucchini, red onion, parsnip instead of the sweet potato).

Ingredients:

  • 7 Tbsp butter (preferably unsalted)
  • 3 C rolled oats (quick oats, but not instant)
  • 2-1/2 C grated cheese
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 C mashed sweet potato

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a square or jelly roll pan.

Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and combine all the ingredients in it; mix well. Press the mixture into the pan and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, then cut into slices, and cool on a wire rack.
