Chewy Maple Bacon Oatmeal Squares

Soft, chewy, and delicious, these oatmeal squares are a great snack or breakfast item to go!

Anybody love those breakfast squares Quaker makes? Or the chewy oatmeal squares made by Nature Valley? I absolutely love them and could eat a whole pack in a day as a teenager. I honestly enjoy any type of baked oatmeal anything. 

I tried out this Nature Valley Copy Cat Oatmeal Square by "Chelsea's Messy Apron" and found it to replicate Nature Valley's square very, very well. I think it is a good base for any kind of baked oatmeal square you'd like to make.

I used the aforementioned recipe for the base of this oatmeal square (it's plenty good all by itself) and then added our absolutely favorite bacon topped onto a maple icing. I love maple bacon donuts and this recipe ended up tasting very similar without near as much guilt.
