I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately so instead of my typical oatmeal or yogurt for breakfast, I’ve been starting my days with green smoothies. I do the same combo every day of frozen banana, almond milk, spinach, and vanilla protein powder, and even though I’ve been having one every morning for two months now, I can’t get enough of them! While the smoothies do a great job at filling me up, mentally I still need a little something to chew on to tell my brain that I’ve had breakfast. I usually grab a granola bar or some almonds, but last week I was craving blueberry muffins. Enter: these bars in an attempt to eat something a little healthier than a muffin.
These bars are definitely not cake bars with “breakfast” slapped on the name to make them appropriate to eat in the morning. They are filled with wheat flour, oats, honey, flaxseed, banana, and big plump blueberries and are truly good-for-ya bars. You could also swap the blueberries for walnuts, pecans, almonds, cranberries, or even chocolate chips and they’d still be great for breakfast. They make the perfect quick breakfast or snack and for me, they were a great snack a couple of hours after my smoothie and definitely satisfied my blueberry muffin craving.
