    Can i replace the protein powder, if yes what can i replace it with?

    1. Martin

      I’m also wondering this. What would be a suitable replacement, in taste & amount?
      I mean; i have concentrated ‘vanilla essence’, would a couple of drops of that + everything else as-is work?

      1. Steven

        3 scoops is a lot of dry ingredient to leave out. You might have to substitute a little bit of flour to make up for it. It isn’t in there for the vanilla flavoring.

        1. Jesse

          Would you say 3 scoops of flour to replace the protein or less flour?

          1. Denar Draw

            You probably need the same mass of flour as is missing from the lack of protein powder

    Bro, I made this 2x already.

    I added in a little bit of sugar for sweetness.

    I also do the milk when I reheat. Pure goodness.

    What fat percentage milk are your calories calculated with?

    This is by far one of my favorite breakfast recipes on here both in terms of cooking ease and taste, thanks dude.

    Amazing and quick

    What can i use instead of applesauce?

    1. AJ Lewis

      I use the same amount of mashed *very ripe* bananas and I think it tastes great

  8. Ananya

    You could use mashed bananas or I even use Greek yogurt.

    This is delightful. If I double this recipe to make a thicker bar that I can cut into narrower strips, how do you think that will effect cooking time?

    I made this for the first time and it tastes great but it’s way more spongy than the video makes it seem. I tried putting it back in the oven for another 15 minutes but still didn’t really solidify. Where could I have gone wrong? Only deviation from the recipe was using 2 eggs rather than the egg whites.

    1. Denar Draw

      Did you do it using imperial or metric measurements? If you did it using metric, try using more oats. In other recipes for these oat bakes, I see a lot of users saying that the 240g figure is wrong for 3 cups of this type of oats, that the real figure is 270-340g. Having a “watery” result would be indicative that you needed more dry mix (i.e. oats).

    I’ve been making this weekly for the past couple of months, it’s a great ‘cheap’ protein bar to have with and just really helps with the sweettooth during a workday. Thanks so much for this recipe

    I wanted to try this because I kept eating store-bought cereal bars for breakfast/snacks, and they’re pretty much nutritionally void besides carbs, lol. I like this so much better!

    The texture is really easy to eat–not mushy or gloopy like traditional oatmeal, and solid enough to pick up and eat with one hand (especially straight out of the fridge). It’s sort of like eating a sweet quiche that’s not as jiggly because of the oats.

    Ingredients are really easy to substitute. My grocery store didn’t have everything I needed, so I used 4 tablespoons of Splenda instead of the maple syrup and sweetened applesauce instead of unsweetened. Still great.

    I used a 9″ by 13″ pan like the recipe suggests, and I cut my oatmeal into 8 pieces. I might do 10 next time because these are some thicc slices.

    I was going to make the blueberry and lemon baked oatmeal this week, but I liked this so much that I just made it a second time. Excellent recipe from the Mayor of Snack City. 😎

    P.S. — if you use whole eggs, make sure you whisk them with a fork before you put them in your batter. You’ll get random bits of egg with a hard-boiled texture if you don’t.
