Ozark Trail Bars


I'm on a mission to find a recipe after having Stone Mill's Ozark Blueberry Trail Bars yesterday. My Mother-in-law and I had a 10 o'clock appointment with AARP's free tax preparers at the Boys and Girl's Club in South Fayetteville. She was anxious to have her taxes done, we always worry we're going to have to pay... don't we? She got good news/bad news, the good news is she didn't have to pay and the bad... she didn't get any money back! Oh well, we felt rich somehow when we left there so we headed for a quick lunch at Stone Mill's Bakery and Cafe down on Gregg Street.


They are famous for their whole grain breads and have a delicious menu of homemade soups and sandwiches. It was a cold, blustery day so we both chose a bowl of Chicken and Dumpling soup. It came with two chunks of their crusty French Bread and butter, YUM! The soup was so good, little pinches of dumplings in a thick golden broth. I just know there's a Grandma back there in the kitchen making this one!
Since we were good and just had soup, well kinda good since we both scrarfed down the buttered bread... we decided we'd try the delicious looking Ozark Trail Bars that we saw in the bakery case as we ordered our soup. It was a little hard to look away from the giant iced cinnamon rolls, but they were the size of my hand and I can only eat so much! I went back up to the counter and ordered a mixed berry bar for me and a blueberry bar for Mom. They menu says they are made with whole wheat, rye, barley, oats, and spelt flours. In fact most of their breads are made without any fat, eggs or dairy. Now I'm on an Internet search for a recipe and it's not easy. Anyone have an idea how they did this magic trick... they were out of the this world delicious!

I didn't take my camera, but a quick Google search and I'm finding pictures that "look like" the bars, just not the healthy ingredients. Then I had the bright idea to see if anyone had posted a recipe to Pinterest. Guess what I'm making today? Go HERE for the recipe...

    1. Thanks so much for the great recipe! These were probably made with no sugar, just guessing but they were the best trail bars I'd ever had.

    2. Hi, I am from St. Louis Missouri and also love the Ozark trail bars from Stone Mill Bakery. Have you experimented with several recipes and have you come up with one you like? I found some of the ingredients of the Ozark Trail Bars on their menu, wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, triticale and brown sugar along with berries and nuts. I used bob's Red Mill 5 grain rolled hot cereal plus flaxseed along with a separate bag of spelt flour. THanks for sharing what you came up with. tlewandowski@earthlink.net

    1. I found several recipes on Pinterest that 'look' like the bars. The difference will be they don't have the mix of grains like the ones at Stone Mill. That's what made them so dang good!

  4. I'd settle for the chicken and dumpling soup and buttered French bread!
