Saucin’ on the Storm


  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup (vegan option: honey)
  • 3/4 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons imitation vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, crushed


Line a 8 by 8 -inch pan with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking oil. (Don’t do this with the applesauce) Mix wet ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir the mix and microwave for another minute. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and pour the wet mix in as you stir. Stir everything together until it is well covered and pour into the pan. Flatten in the pan and let everything sit in a refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours. Cut and serve.
