101 Wednesday: Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. A lot of us skip out on breakfast because we are short on time or can't find quick healthy choices. I've mentioned the importance of breakfast here, so I wont bore you with repeating myself..

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest breakfasts you can have in the morning, but not all of us have time to sit down and enjoy a bowl everyday. Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are an awesome way to squeeze in your breakfast and reap the benefits to a healthy start. You can make these easy bars at the beginning of the week, and individually wrap them for grab and go breakfast on the fly. They also make great snacks for traveling or hiking trips.

Don't be shy to get creative with these bars by adding your favorite ingredients. You can use my recipe as a base and jazz it up with various fruits, peanut butter, dried fruits or anything else you like to add into your oatmeal.

  2. I am always looking for new bar recipes like these. Two cups of milk seemed weird, but I guess that it works. I love that little VitaMix spatula!!, it is so handy.

    Minou is so adorable. My only gray cat looks just like her dad or grandfather!
