Peanut Butter and Jam (Pbj) Oatmeal Protein Bars

I was created this bar because I was looking for something really yummy yet healthy to eat before I go running early in the morning. I needed something with a bit less sugar and carbs and a bit more protein than usual. This bar is also high in fiber, lignans, and omega 3 fats. I used thick rolled oats, not quick oats because they digest slower (lower GI) and ultimately keep your blood sugar nice and steady and hunger at bay. I also use a reduced sugar jam, you could also try a sugar free jam. I really love PBJ so I used a PBJ bar recipe and totally mixed it up and made it healthy and higher in protein. Not too sweet and so filling! Enjoy!
