If you’re after some healthy alternatives to breakfast, look no further. If you want something packed with flavour in the morning, something that’s going to wake you up but not packed with so much sugar your teeth could fall out, check out this healthy breakfast bar recipe.
Thanks to Opies I was able to make this new alternative to boring cereal all the time! If you’re looking for healthy breakfast bars to buy I would say stop and look at this breakfast bar recipe before you spend out, even more so because you’re getting a lot more with this recipe than you would be if you’re buying them.
If you love Opies food as much as I do I’d suggest taking a look at these very yummy chocolate and cherry fudge recipe.
Healthy Oat Bar Recipe Low Calorie
I’m all about losing weight, watching what I eat and making sure that I’m not eating a load of crap all the time. When Christmas and new years comes to an end, I’ve eaten enough chocolate to feed an army and can hardly move you can bet I need something yummy but healthy to eat and no, skinny whip bars aren’t always going to cover it!
If you want to know how to make healthy breakfast bars then look no further. I’m not going to lie I had to attempt these a few times, I found myself not putting in enough oats the first couple of times and they just fell apart into mush. This isn’t a health breakfast bar no sugar included version so if you’re looking for a sugar free breakfast bar I can’t help you out at the moment.
One thing I will say is that if you’re making this recipe make sure you have a silicone baking tray at hand, a nice deep square one will do it. Saves on baking paper waste and so easy to use and clean! You’ll also need to get your Opies products that are found in pretty much every supermarket or on Amazon! I can’t get enough of their cocktail cherries that’s for sure!
Cherry Breakfast Bars Recipe
You could see this as a healthy baked oatmeal bars recipe because it’s packed of healthy, yummy oats but I like to call them baked breakfast bars. The cherries in this gives it that kick of flavour that you need to start your day off and everything else is just an added bonus in my opinion. Enjoy these cherry and stem ginger breakfast bars and let me know what you think in the comments!
These will keep in an air tight container for at least a week, if they last that long! Remember they might not be the prettiest but they taste amazing!
