Oat Bran Bars

One weekend, we went to Mimi's Cafe for brunch on a Saturday morning, and we found a pan full of goodies at the front of the restaurant in the waiting area.  There was no wait, but we each helped ourselves to a few anyway.  They were delicious.  We asked our server about them, and we found out that they had simply taken one of their signature muffin mixtures and spread it in a pan to make bars instead of muffins.  They also topped theirs with oats.  We forgot to pick those up, though.

I loved the muffin bars, so I decided to put them right here on this blog.  I found a box of oat bran muffin mix at the store, checked the ingredients, and I was happy there wasn't anything in it that I objected to terribly.  My husband thought they were brownies.  I was pretty pleased that they tasted good enough to seem bad for you, but they really weren't too bad for you!  I also enjoyed just the slight hint of sweetness without the heavy sugary flavor that I don't like in a lot of sweets.

Directions:  Prepare the muffin mix per package instructions (add water), then spread the mixture into a greased rectangular pan.  So easy, Sasha did all the steps herself.  Cook per directions, let cool, then cut into squares.
