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!

    What about gluten free flour. There are many children/adults who are wheat intolerent. I usually try to substitute wheat flour with gluten free flour, No one knows the difference.

    Thank you, this looks like a great receipe except for the wheat.

      I haven’t tested this recipe with gluten free flour, but I’m sure it’ll work!

    While I’m sure that this is delicious, it is not in any way “balanced”. It is ultra heavy on carbs with a little fat and even less protein.
    In fact, it would be hard to find a worse breakfast.

    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.

    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!

    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! :)
