Apricot Oat Bars (Gluten Free & Dairy Free Options)

Coming up with fun and tasty creations for your family to sample can be one of life’s greatest pleasures. Making food is one way that many of us speak our family’s love language. Having an easy treat that you can make in less than 30 minutes, and will be a hit with all your family is important, right?

Made with real food ingredients, being gluten free and dairy-free is a plus!

I give you these apricot oat bars.

With only 5 simple ingredients, you can be the after school snack hero. Receive accolades at your next party, gathering or school bake sale. They are that good.

My family enjoys these immensely, and they are 100% Frenchman approved. The Frenchman is rather picky about his desserts, and treats, so when he says they are “Gooo-oood”, then I know it’s a winner.

You can use store bought apricot jam, home-canned apricot jam or home canned apricots if you would like. This will also help you control the ingredients and added sugar even more.
