Apple Oatmeal Bars

Patty Ward


Yes, another Mennonite recipe! This one hails from N. Lima Ohio!
What's not to love about apples and oatmeal? Sounds a little healthy too!
Have not tried these, but I will. I know my hubby will love these. We have oatmeal for breakfast every day and sometimes slice up a little apple in there too.
