Charmingly old-fashioned, these wholesome bars pair the comforting flavors of apples and oats. Theyre the perfect snack to pack in a lunch box or enjoy with a cup of tea.
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 9-inch square baking pan, or coat with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in mixing bowl. Using fork or fingertips, work in oil and cider until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Press about 1 1/2 cups oat mixture firmly into bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle with apples. Mix walnuts into remaining oat mixture, sprinkle evenly over apples and pat into even layer.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until top is golden and apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into bars.
