Apple Breakfast Bars- FAST!

I found this recipe online, and decided to try it because it looked so easy and healthy. Scarlotte and I made them this morning and easy and healthy they are!

Apple Breakfast Bars (or snack bars!)
Good and healthy!

1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 orange juice (I only had apple juice and used that instead)
1 1/2 cups raw apples, shredded (about 2 medium)

Place first 7 ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey (almost doesn't need the honey, but I added it anyway to find out later it was sweet already). Let stand 10 minutes. Press into a greased (grapeseed oil spray) 8 by 8 pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Serve warm. Freezes well.
