George Family Breakfast Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Katie G

My kids needed a quick, healthy breakfast for school days. Especially my teenage daughter who'd rather not eat at all! Oh, one other thing - they wanted it to taste good! So I developed this recipe for them.

These oatmeal bars are great! I admit I substituted half the butter with ground flax seed (6 T. with enough water to equal half a cup) and left out the chocolate chips to make them a little healthier, but they still turned out tasting good. After cutting the entire sheet pan into squares I froze them individually. Just let them thaw naturally and in less than an hour they're ready to eat! Almost forgot - I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to make up for the lack of chocolate chips. Thanks for posting this super breakfast bar recipe!
