The girls were wanting breakfast bars the other day but I can’t see paying that price not to mention all the additives and preservatives in them so I found a recipe and tweaked it and this is what I got. The girls liked them and I thought they were very similar to the store bought kind.
Whole-Grain Strawberry Breakfast Bars Recipe
3 c old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
11/2 c whole-wheat flour
½ c white flour
11/3 c packed brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2/3 c canola or vegetable oil
2 large eggs
Strawberry Jelly ( or whatever kind you would like to use )
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine oats, flours, sugars, and cinnamon in a food processor. Process until oats are finely ground. Add oil and eggs; pulse to evenly combine, scraping sides of work bowl.
Press half of the crumb mixture evenly on bottom of a well-oiled or greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Spread Jelly evenly over crumbs. Top with remaining crumbs and pat down gently. Make sure they are packed down good so the bars will stay together when cut.
Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan. Cut into bars.
