It goes without saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but admittedly with my busy schedule lately I’ve been throwing that fact out the window. Sometimes all I want is a quick snack to munch on as I leave the house and when I stumbled upon these oatmeal breakfast bars I couldn’t be more elated! They’re loaded with whole, healthy ingredients and are incredibly satiating! They are also naturally sweetened with honey and raisins, so all the health conscious folk and my fellow sweet tooth friends out there alike are covered! Perfect power breakfast to kick-start your day!
