    1. Certainly! You can use steel-cut oats, but they’re chewier and take longer to cook. I’d recommend soaking them in water for a few hours before using them in the recipe. This will soften them up and help them cook faster. You might also need to bake the bars a bit longer. Just keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t over-bake.

  1. These are so tasty!!! Even my husband and kids like them, and usually they’re picky and prefer store-bought bars. WIN!

    1. Thanks for sharing, Lauren! It’s great to hear that even the picky eaters in your family enjoyed these bars. 🙂
