Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan (I used a glass loaf pan) with parchment paper or rub down with coconut oil (coconut or avocado oil spray works too). Set aside.
Place half of the rolled oats in the glass of a blender and pulse until you have fine powder. Add to a medium bowl.
Add the rest of the rolled oats, coconut oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon, apple sauce, and most of the cubed apples (save 1/4 cup) and mix until well incorporated.
Press the mix into prepared pan with the back of a spoon, be sure that it's packed in tight. Top with remaining cubed apples. Press in a bit so they stick. You can also use sliced apples to make it "fancy".
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for ten minutes. Run a knife along the edges, then flip onto a cutting board. Let cool completely and slice into bars.
