Easy-to-make bars that you can easily adapt to fit your favorite toppings – and take on the go, too!
I snack for the good of humanity. If I don’t eat every few hours, I devolve into a huge grouch. No one deserves to have that kind of misery inflicted upon them!
In addition to keeping me full, happy, and healthy, snacks prevent me from unleashing my "hanger" on unsuspecting co-workers. I try to keep a few easy-to-carry, reasonably healthy foods on my person at all times, and these Pancake Breakfast Bars are my latest favorite. Fluffy and filling, these quick and easy bites are endlessly adaptable, portable, and make a totally tasty breakfast or snack on the go.
They're are a snap to make, thanks to Bisquick. Stir it up according to the package directions. We’ve got this.
Next, the good stuff: Mix-ins! Gently fold in any of your favorite fruits (dried, fresh, or frozen and thawed all work well), nuts, or chips. I used Cascadian Farms granola to make the bars heartier, along with chocolate chips to make them… wait, do I need a reason for chocolate?
Rather than painstakingly flipping every individual pancake, simply pour the mix into a baking dish, pop it into the oven, then bake at 350ºF. We are masters of pancake efficiency.
Once the bars have cooled, slice them into bars. You can enjoy them immediately for breakfast, freeze them for later, or wrap them up and bring them on the go. When I have time to sit down, I like mine warmed up with Yoplait Vanilla Greek Yogurt for dipping.
Whether you're looking for an easy, yummy breakfast, an on-the-go bite, or an after school/work snack, Pancake Breakfast Bars are your man! Er, bar. Just trust me and bake them; you’ll love ‘em.
