Breakfast is a really difficult meal for me. I seem to find myself racing out the door with a pathetic handful of nuts or a lowly banana half each morning even when I budget in time to feed myself. It’s safe to say my alarm clock and I have a tumultuous relationship. So when I stumbled upon a recipe for yummy oat-based breakfast bars, I was intrigued. They taste amazing, are easy to make ahead of time, and are portable for busy mornings! I couldn’t wait to try them with some moringa.
The moringa is a great addition to these hearty bars and meshes especially well with the berries.
With oats, chia, moringa, nuts, and coconut oil, you can look forward to being full and satisfied all morning.
