An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Healthy Breakfast Muffin Bars

Tired of spending heaps on “bars” that are packed with sugar?

Need a quick treat that keeps you sated all morning long?

Have a taste of these breakfast cups!

Depending on the kind of oats you use, they can be gluten Free and oh so nutritious. Pump up the protein by adding nuts or seeds. You can also make them more dessert-ish by adding dark chocolate chips to the mix.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375

In a mixing bowl combine:

1 1/2 cup Rolled oats (I use Trader Joe’s gluten free)

3/4 cup coconut sugar (I use TJ’s organic)  or maple syrup to minimize the glycemic load

(though you could use brown sugar if you’re going all desserty)

2 eggs (farm fresh hormone free, of course)

1/2-3/4 cup peanut butter

1/8 cup softened butter

3/4 tsp baking soda

6 oz chocolate chips*

1/4 chopped walnuts or sunflower seeds*

 

* optional

Pour concoction in to greased (I use butter or coconut oil) muffin pan and bake for 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, you can pour in to greased glass dish and cut in to bars. Either way, viola!, breakfast is made for the week!

    These look good, but I’d have to make a pan every day for the week! 😉 (Growing women, you know!)

    Well, I made them and doubled the recipe. Added some shredded coconut since I had some on hand. Our crew of 10 (on vacation) loved them! I baked them in 9X13 for 20 minutes. Thank you so much! I did also sub coconut oil for the butter since we have some issues with that in some people. Just perfect! Yum!

      Jealous! Of your group vacation! How fun! Delighted you made them and enjoyed them! Love the idea of adding coconut and subbing coconut oil for butter!

    Finding a grain-free cereal in the grocery store is pretty much an impossible mission, so making it at home is the best option. This twist on Cinnamon Toast Crunch is made with hemp seeds, flax seeds, cinnamon, apple juice, and coconut oil. Storing it in an airtight container also means it’ll stay fresh way longer than that boxed stuff.
