How we start each day is so important. Fueling your body at the beginning sets the tone for your daily energy and so for me, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. No matter when you choose to break your fast in the morning (some do it earlier than others), this is a very important meal.

With that focus in mind, I have been making a version of these Oatmeal Breakfast Bars every week and my family enjoys them all week long. I typically make mine on Sundays, but a different day might work better for you. These bars are easily adaptable to seasonal fruits and they also work well with frozen fruit, which makes them budget friendly as well. Plus they travel easily, so you can readily pack them up and take them to school or the office.
