At some point in our collective recent history, breakfast bars became a thing. It probably has something to do with the fact that we’re all super busy and—no matter how much we wish this wasn’t true—coffee just isn’t enough to sustain us through an entire hectic morning. Alas, the quick, handheld, super yummy breakfast bar was born.
You can hit the cereal aisle of your local grocery store and pick up some premade breakfast bars if you’re really crunched for time—but if you’ve got 45 minutes to spare this weekend, we think you should try making your own. They are fresh, healthy(ish), really filling, way tasty and a lot cheaper than the pre-made ones.
These bars are like killing three breakfast birds with one stone. You get a bowl of whole grain oatmeal, a pile of strawberries, and some protein-packed yogurt, all in a handheld bar that you can definitely eat while sitting in traffic on your way to work. Save spoons and bowls and other crazy ideas like that for the weekend. Now is the time for breakfast bars.
