One of my current favorite food blogs is Kath Eats Real Food. She blogs what she eats and gives people a really good idea what a healthy diet can look like. She has great recipes on her blog as well. I was perusing the recipe section (I pay special attention to the oatmeal section) and found these lovely baked oatmeal snack bars. It took a couple days before I had the time to try them but I was finally able to make them yesterday. I am so happy I did. These bars are not crunch but chewy – my favorite kind.
You can find the recipe here. Here are the changes I made:
- soy milk instead of skim milk
- pumpkin seeds instead of nuts (I didn’t have any nuts)
- cranberries for the dried fruit
- baked at 170C for 50 minutes
Make sure you read the comments under her post for lots of good variation ideas.
I had a snack bar for breakfast this morning with sliced banana and yogurt topped with ground black sesame seeds and herb tea. A great start to the day.
