Walmart doesn't carry my family's favorite oatmeal-to-go bar, can I make my own?

My family and I love the Quaker oatmeal to go breakfast bar w/ brown sugar. I am wondering if anybody knows of a good recipe for a hearty to go (chewy, thick, and not crumbly) I can make myself.
Please help!

Here's one I like.

Chewy Oatmeal Bars

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup white sugar
4 ounces vanilla (or plain) yogurt
1 large egg white, beaten lightly
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup oats (I use old fashioned)
1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)

1. Mix together sugars, yogurt, egg white, oil, milk and vanilla.

2. Sift together dry ingredients and add to mixture.

3. Stir in oats and raisins.

4. Spread dough onto an ungreased 8x8 inch pan.

5. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 16 bars.

(I normally skip the cinnamon, and make these with dried cranberries & chocolate chips- our family's favorite combination!)

And another! I love making oatmeal bars as a snack!

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Squares

1 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned or quick)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt (or 1/4 tsp. table salt)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 large banana, mashed
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1. Mix together the oats, brown sugar (I used a little less than 1/4 cup), baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

2. Add in the vanilla, milk, and egg. Mix the ingredients together. Then add in the mashed banana and peanut butter and stir to combine.

3. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 8x8 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool, cut into squares, and enjoy!
