School starts this week all around the country. It can be a big transition for kids and families alike. One way to help with this kind of a transition is to have the kids participate in developing their new routines. Today, we are making a very simple recipe that most kids can participate in to some degree. Below is a video on how to make On The Go Breakfast Bars. If you like it please share it! Below the video is a full recipe.
To make On The Go Breakfast Bars, you will need:
- 2 cups of Oats
- 1 cup rice cereal
- 1/4 cup chia
- 1/4 flax seed
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
If you have young kids, they can help mix the dry ingredients. Mix the oats, rice cereal, chia and flax in a large bowl. Stir to mix.
Then, over medium high heat melt the butter, honey and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, but only enough to brown the butter. After you bring the mix to a boil, remove from heat and quickly pour it into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir together before pouring into a baking pan.
Let the bars cool. Give them plenty of time. I stuck mine in the fridge and they were almost hard. Cut them into the shape and size you want and wrap them individually. Place them in the fridge where it is easy for the kids to grab and get ready for school.
Not only are they easy to make and eat, On The Go Breakfast Bars are a also a great way to get healthy foods like oats, flax, and chia into you kiddo’s bellies.
