Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Easy Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

I love to make things that I can eat throughout the week for a quick, no fuss breakfast.  Oatmeal Breakfast Bars are on the top of that list.  I can make a pan of them on Sunday and they’ll last all week.  They’ve got a lot of great ingredients in them that stick to your ribs, and a delicious flavor that is like your favorite oatmeal cooking in bar form.  Oats, bananas, apple butter, and peanut butter bring out the best flavor, while honey sweetens the mix and spelt flour holds it all together.  You can use whole wheat flour if you prefer, as it has that dense consistency that holds the oats as well.

My Favorite Ingredients in Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Oatmeal Breakfast Bars require a few ingredients, but it’s well worth gathering them all up.  Old fashioned oats work best in Oatmeal Breakfast Bars, as they hold up to baking well.  I prefer spelt flour in this recipe, as I stated, but any heavy flour will work.  Ground cinnamon adds a wonderful flavor, while baking powder and salt allow the mix to rise.  I use almond milk in Oatmeal Breakfast Bars, but you can also use regular milk if you like.  A bit of honey sweetens, while peanut butter adds flavor and protein.  An egg helps bind everything while vanilla and a banana lend their flavor.  In the end, you’ll have a perfect batch of Oatmeal Breakfast Bars.
