Shore House Breakfast Bars

“Full of dried fruit, nuts and seeds, these bars are delicious and much more filling than most granola bars.”


  • 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
  • (I use dry oat meal)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup Granola
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • ½ cup Applesauce
  • ½ cup honey
  • 6 T brown sugar
  • 4 T vegetable oil
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds - kernels only, no shells
  • (Any seeds will be good here)
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • (Pecans will work as well)
  • 2 cups dried fruit

(I used rasins, crazins, etc. any dried fruit will work well)

1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Line a 9 x 12 baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.

2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread mixture evenly in the prepared pan. Smooth to an even thickness with a spatula.

3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until firm and lightly browned around the edges. Let cool. Use the foil to lift from the pan. Cut into 8 bars approximately 2 ½” X 4 ½”.

4. Wrap each bar in Freezer Paper or Butcher Paper and tape closed with Masking Tape.
Put the bars in a large baggie and freeze.

These bars are easy to hand out to guests that can’t stay for breakfast.
