Vegan Caramel Apple Oat Bars

Well, it was pretty much a tie between sweet and savory in response to my question on my IG post, so I kinda did both. These VEGAN CARAMEL APPLE OAT BARS are totally customizable, so easy, and make a delicious, convenient breakfast or snack. In my next batch, I’ll add collagen protein or vanilla protein powder and have this post-workout to fuel me for a long day.
