  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup mashed banana (1 medium)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats

  • Heat oven to 350º F (180º C) and line a 13x9" (33 cm x 23 cm) baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Combine brown sugar and applesauce together by hand until in a medium bowl.

  • In a separate large bowl, combine flour, ground flax seed, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

This recipe makes a lot!
These bars freezer well for up to 1 month.
I usually freeze ½ the recipe - wrapped in parchment paper, in an air-tight container.
