Oatmeal breakfast bars and healthy snack
Peanut butter oatmeal breakfast bars are 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 welcomed change.
Healthy snack bars
There are several reasons I enjoy the 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, these peanut butter oatmeal breakfast bars would 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 type 1 diabetic so it is necessary, that I bring along snacks with me to raise my blood sugar. The oatmeal bars are a fantastic source of carbs and protein. They raise my blood sugar and also keep it balanced because of the protein. Having a go-to snack to treat my diabetes is essential.
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.
