Power Breakfast Bars

Barbara Oseland


These bars are full of fruit and oats. Great for a grab and go in the morning. The different cereal gives you the boost. I tend to have them with my smoothie in the morning, or a snack in the afternoon to keep my energy running high.

How to Make Power Breakfast Bars


  • 1Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray a 9 inch square baking pan with non-stick spray.
  • 2Stir together oats, flour, cerael and cinnamon. Add in egg, applesauce, honey, brown sugar, vanilla and oil. Stir well. Add in wheat germ, flax if desired, dried fruit and nut mixture. Spread into baking pan and lightly press down with moistened hand or spoon (to keep from sticking).
