Healthy Breakfast Bar Recipes Perfect for Mornings When You're On-the-Go
Whether you're on-the-go or looking to start your day with something quick, delicious, and healthy, breakfast bars, which are often made with wholesome ingredients like oats, granola, nuts, dried fruit, and (sometimes) lots of dark chocolate, are a smart, easy option . While many of the store-bought varieties have lots of added sugar, our recipes pack in tons of flavor and offer health benefits, too.
Love a bowl of golden Os at breakfast time? Take them with you on busy mornings in the form of our sweet, portable Honey Nut Cereal Bars. Mix together butter, brown sugar, honey, and roasted almonds with toasted oat cereal; then just press into a pan, let cool, and cut into squares (no baking required!). Our Chocolate-Cherry Granola Bars are sure to be popular among kids on the schoolyard. They will love the combination of chocolate, puffed-rice cereal, and crunchy granola. Just mix everything together in a bowl, then transfer to a baking dish to bake for 40 minutes. They're nut- and gluten-free, too, so they're safe to bring to school.
Bars aren't exclusively a breakfast food, though. Our Dried-Fruit-and-Nut Bars make a great snack any time of day. Packed with dried fruit such as papaya, cherries, and blueberries—plus nuts and healthy grains such as oat bran and flax seeds—this is a sweet bite that you can feel good about digging into at any hour. We even have a dairy-free option! Our Vegan Granola Bars are super healthy thanks to antioxidant-rich dried fruit, fibrous wheat germ, and natural sweeteners.
Whether you make these bars for a bake sale or wrap them individually for your family to eat throughout the week, they're delicious, healthy options you can feel good about serving your loved ones. Skip the extra calories and added sugar of store-bought options and feel free to get creative with out healthy breakfast bar recipes.
