This week, we not only made dinners and lunches, but also breakfast bars! They turned out really good and were oh, so easy to make, so I had to share.
Breakfast is hard because the granola bars you get at the grocery store are overly processed and high in sugar or expensive. If I don't grab something in the morning though, I am tempted to stop for a muffin and fancy coffee drink on my commute or I eat too much at lunch. This 5 ingredient recipe from How Sweet It Is is perfect.
Here are the instructions.
First, you need -
4 cups of rolled oats
2 tablespoons of chia seeds (these are great for an energy boost!)
1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
3/4 cup natural peanut butter, melted
1/2 cup of honey
You can also add in just about anything you'd like, I chose chocolate chips, of course.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together, then add the honey.
Last, pour your mixture into a 9x13 pan and stick it in the refrigerator! After about an hour, you can cut it up into bars. You could bake this instead, but I love the crunchy, chewy texture - and you know that I love no-bake cookies. But, if you choose to bake it, heat your oven to 350 and put it in there for 25 minutes.
And there you have it! A super easy breakfast bar recipe. I will probably make this every Sunday, it was so simple to make and really delicious.
Let me know if you try this out. Also, if you have any meal planning tips, please share!
