Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Oat Squares

I wanted to try baking with the steel cut oats and found this recipe.  I made a couple modifications from the original - skim milk, lactose free; walnuts instead of pecans- but the final product looks and smells great!

Transfer to a 9-inch square baking pan sprayed with cooking spray; press down and smooth out the top and bake until firm and golden brown, about 1 hour.
