Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are like a bowl of oatmeal, sweetened with chunks of raisins and banana, baked into a bar.
Mornings are hectic at my house, and I don’t always have time to sit down and eat breakfast. I know breakfast is “the most important meal of the day” but there are a thousand reasons why I usually end up skipping breakfast.
It turns out skipping the first meal of the day doesn’t necessarily help you in any way, but especially when you are hungry enough to eat a cow at 11:30, and lunch ends up looking a little like this:
Oatmeal is my first choice of breakfast, but it is not super convenient. To make oatmeal an easier breakfast for busy mornings, I experimented with baking it into bars for a healthy portable breakfast. It turned out, Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are not only a fairly healthy and delicious breakfast, but freeze beautifully. Make a pan or two Sunday evening, cut these bad boys up and freeze them, and you have breakfast all week.
What I love most about Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are they are not overly sweet. It is seriously like a bowl of oatmeal, sweetened with chunks of raisins and banana, baked into a bar. They are dense and filling, So no more hangry mid-day assaults on the pantry.
