This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


2 large apples, grated
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 180C degrees.Coat a 8x8" baking dish with cooking spray.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Let stand for 15 minutes, so the oats and flour can absorb the apple juices. Bake for 30 minutes.
Cut into squares while still warm.




Anyone here whose New Year resolution was a low-fat and no-refined-sugar diet? Try these apple walnut squares. They are sweetened with dried dates and otherwise contain rolled oats, whole wheat flour and apple juice. Now that I look at the ingredients again, they are in fact vegan.
I love the smell of cooked apples with cinnamon. I think this is one of the main reasons, why these cookies appealed to me when I first found the recipe. Needless to say, I also love to eat cooked apple with cinnamon.
These squares are best eaten straight out of the oven. But you can also heat them up for breakfast, or, like I did yesterday, for a lovely afternoon snack in the car while driving.
