WOW Breakfast Bar

My cooking classes are starting back up again and the first one is Breakfasts for Healthy Minds (check out the class tab to see them all).  I have been experimenting and baking – hoping to come up with a good breakfast bar for those mornings when you are in the negative time warp!!  I think I have hit the jackpot.  I have to thank Anja’s Food 4 Thought, since her bar was the basis of this hit in our house!

WOW Breakfast Bar


1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1 1/4 cup whole milk (preferably raw) OR you could use a nut milk
3/4 cup dried fruit (blueberries, apples, cherries, apricots)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pistachio, almonds, walnuts)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbl chia seeds
2 Tbl hemp seeds
2 Tbl flax seed meal


1. Mix the milk and oats in a glass bowl and set aside.

2.  Measure out your dried fruit.  All the fruit I used I had picked and dried myself.  Some needed to by cut smaller, using scissors works so much better than a knife.

3. Measure out 1/2 cups of nuts, place in a plastic bag and using a rolling pin – crush the nuts.  Again, I think this is so much easier than chopping with a knife.

4. Mix all the remaining ingredients into the milk/oats mixture – let sit for 10 minutes or more.

5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.

6. Pour (or better yet, push it in – it is not runny) the batter into the pan and spread and flatten evenly.

7. Baked for 30 45 minutes – check after 30 minutes.  It will start to brown on top and when touched will spring back.  Take out of the oven, cool for about 5 minutes and then cut into 16 bars.

Allow to cool completely then store.  After cutting I lifted the parchment paper out and placed on a rack to cool faster.  Yummy!!

These are also making great lunch snacks!!
