Oatmeal Breakfast Bars as a Healthy Snack

This healthy breakfast bars recipe is an easy and fun snack that the kids will love. My family has always enjoyed a cereal breakfast bar for a snack.  Together, my husband and I found a fabulous, new, recipe for an oatmeal bar! 

My children enjoy these oatmeal bars for a snack after school with a glass of milk. They like the sweetness of the bar which is attributed to agave and stevia. My daughter said she was bored with cereal bars, so this was a welcome change from the norm.

Healthy Protein Snack Bars

There are several reasons I enjoy oatmeal bars.  First, they are an excellent source of fiber.  Second, they have a good amount of protein.

Finally, they are a good replenishing source of carbohydrates for post-workout.  My husband and I work out in the evenings so these bars are a perfect snack before bed.

Oatmeal Squares on the Go

With summer on its way, this healthy breakfast bars recipe will be an asset to a Sunday brunch or summer picnic.  They would also make a convenient treat to pack to the pool.  The carbohydrate boost is ideal for summer activities. Often when I go swimming I don’t have the appetite to eat a big lunch so this filling snack would surely be appropriate.

Low Sugar Snack Bars

I’m a Type 1 diabetic, so it is imperative that I bring along snacks with me to raise my blood sugar.   The healthy breakfast bars recipe is a fantastic source of carbs and protein.  They raise my blood sugar and also keep it balanced because of the protein.

Preparing a batch of these oatmeal bars in advance would be a beneficial thing to do.  The healthy snack alternative is also a great alternative to bad snack foods like potato chips, cookies, and donuts. They keep for about a week so no need to freeze.  Overall it would be in the best interest of a health conscience household to make these delicious oatmeal bars.
