Oatmeal Grape Bars

These Oatmeal Grape Bars are perfect for breakfast when you are constantly on the go. They are also perfect twist for a nice cozy evening when you are wining down in your recliner with a cup of tea.

This recipe is quite similar to my Oatmeal Craisin Bars. However, instead of using Instant Oatmeal, I actually used plain ole Whole Rolled Oats which is a healthier choice. I decided to experiment with this dish. I did not have craisins, but I had grapes. I also could not use brown sugar, so I used light agave. It’s incredible how things just comes together when I experiment. If you are looking for more of a sweet flavor, try adding grapes to your recipes. You’d be surprised. Go ahead and give this breakfast/desert dish a try!
