Apple Streusel Oat Squares

Morning! I hope you had a restful weekend and a very Happy Halloween! I honestly didn’t see too many kids in costumes, but the ones I did see were CUTE.

Yesterday my mom and stepdad came over for breakfast around 10. I wanted to make a fresh batch of muffins or something, so I started searching around the blogosphere. I went over to see what Angela has made lately and as soon as I scrolled a bit, bingo. I had everything that was on the list so I got busy in the kitchen where Buttery Apple Streusel Oat Squares were born.

It was a hit with everyone, but especially me. Angela cut these up into bars, I ate it warm out of the oven…then room temperature out of a bowl, then cold with a fork. I couldn’t stay away from this. There is about 1/3 left right now, (I think…well not I think, I know, I ate 1/3 myself) and I did cut that into 2 giant squares. I may go dive back in right now. 13 miles=hungry.

Just a little more...

I used Angela’s exact recipe, with the following changes:

  • I used butter instead of earth balance.
  • I used 1 flax egg instead of a chia seed egg.
  • I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of kamut flour.

We did 13 miles yesterday, which is the longest run of our training and my life. Danny and I both felt good the entire run, but as soon as we stopped I was very creaky. Last night I felt the sorest I have so far, so hopefully lots of water, greens, pizza, apple strudel, ice and rest will do my body good. I also have a date with yoga at 4.

I’m off to have a slow moving day, do you hear that students??

Enjoy your day!

    Loved the apple streusel hot, but couldn’t even compare with the gigantic chicken roll you made me to help my recovery!

    The apple streusel sounds so good–I don’t blame you for eating so much of it. And way to go on the 13-miler!! Hopefully the yoga helps with the soreness.
