Easy Oatmeal Bar


Is breakfast time a struggle in your house? It is in ours. For some reason our meal times have stretched to nearly an hour, which is inconvenient when I have lots of things to do and occasionally places to go in the morning. I want our kids to have a healthy but filling meal that will give them energy to sustain them (until they need a snack in 45 minutes), so I need a go-to meal that will fill them up quick! 

On days I need a surefire solid and fast breakfast, I’ll make an oatmeal breakfast bar. The kids love the ability to choose their own toppings, and are much more focused on their meal. And, it’s healthy! Win – win. 


I’ll start by making a pot of oatmeal (boil 3.5 cups water, add 2 cups old fashioned oats, a sprinkle of salt, cinnamon, and vanilla, and simmer). I can do this before the kids wake so they just dress it up and eat! Some toppings I use are: 

Quartered Bananas

Chopped apples (add to the oatmeal while it cooks so they soften) 

Slivered almonds

Peanut butter

Brown sugar 

Raisins 

Chia seeds 

Honey 

Chocolate chips 
Set up in little dishes and let them create their own bowls. It may be a bit messy, but they will love it! Be creative. Enjoy!
