Breakfast On-The-Go Video

As any parent of young children will attest to, it's hard getting out the door in the morning. As much as I try to make sure that I have prepared school lunch the night before, laid out the kids' clothes, packed bags and so on, breakfast can all too often become an afterthought. At least once every two weeks I make a batch of these Breakfast On-The-Go Bars so I always have them on hand. They're a simple-to-make. healthy morning treat that can be served at the breakfast table or even in to-go containers. Packed with oats, dried fruits and nuts and moist from the apple sauce they make a balanced morning meal that there is always time for!

    Catherine, love this recipe and will try soon! I love your intro on the video cuz' that's me nearly every morning, but I believe in giving my kids as nutritious as breakfast as possible so this is a great recipe that I will try on those crazy mornings!

    This is totally off the subject, but I couldn't help but notice your cool, edgy gold bracelet. Any info you can provide--retail, artist. . .? Thanks!--I appreciate your recipes and style! :-)

    Hey Catherine, this looks fabulous! Any recommendations for making it gluten free? Just looking for an alternative to the whole wheat flour.
    Thanks!

    I just tried this today and it turned out like cakes. Soft and moist. Tasted good though. Is this supposed to be hard like granola bars?

      They are a more cake consistency! So you made them right! :)

    These looks so good...not to mention easy and convenient! My daughter is allergic to eggs though. Anyone have any suggestions for what I could substitute for the egg?? Thanks!

    Hi I would like to know can I use all purpose flour instead of the whole wheat. It's the only one we have in the house.
