Tomorrow actually brings the first bit of Fall weather we have had so far! This entire week has been in the 90s and tomorrow is a high of 76! You know you live in the South when you’re excited about that number as a high! Ha! Ben and I are going to do all the fun Fall things….go get pumpkins, hit up a Fall festival and of course, bake!

It’s one bowl baking goodness. Chewy, delicious and screams Fall! Cinnamon rolls in a semi-healthier form.
So let’s get into how to make them – spoiler alert: it’s super duper easy!
Ingredients You Need for Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bars:
- rolled oats
- brown sugar
- maple syrup
- salted butter (melted)
- baking powder
- vanilla extract
- powdered sugar
How to Make Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bars:
First, as always, preheat the oven to 350. Mix together the wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl. The wet ingredients are as follows: melted butter, 2 eggs, whole milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Side note: did you know that vanilla extract has over 35% ABV?! I was so shocked when I saw that on my little bottle today. I knew that it was made from alcohol..but I didn’t realize it had the same proof as straight up liquor! LOL.
Okay now back to the recipe…to the whisked wet ingredients, add the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Using a wooden spoon, mix it all together until combined. It should look something like this:
Next, grease a 9×9 inch baking pan and then carefully add the oatmeal bake mixture. Spread it out until it has evenly coated the pan.
Pop this in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove when it’s done and let it cool completely! If not, the bars may fall apart!
Once they are completely cooled, slice them into your preferred size bars.
If desired (and believe me, you’re going to want this to execute that perfect cinnamon roll flavor), mix powdered sugar and milk (or water) together to get that deliciously creamy and perfectly thick cinnamon roll icing! Drizzle as much or as little as you’d like over top of the bars.
Enjoy in the morning, on the go, as a snack or warmed up as a dessert! With coffee, tea, milk. The world is your cinnamon roll oyster!

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bars
- 3 cups rolled old fashioned oats
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tbsp whole milk (more if you want it thinner, less if you want it thinner)
Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together melted butter, 2 eggs, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and the whole milk until combined.
To this bowl, add the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and pinch of salt. Stir together using a wooden spoon until everything is combined.
Grease a 9x9 baking pan. Add the oatmeal mixture carefully to the pan and spread it out evenly on the pan.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven when done and let cool fully. Cut into 9 bars when cool.
Once cooled, in a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar and milk together until desired consistency of glaze has been reached (for thicker, use less milk, for a thinner glaze, use more). Drizzle the glaze generously over the bars. Enjoy!
