Easy breakfast bars

Description

Breakfast to go. These are way better than store bought prepackaged fattening ones!

Ingredients

1⁄3 c
oatmeal
1⁄4 c
cocoa
1 T
peanut butter
1⁄2 c
milk (or yogurt)
1⁄2 c
coffee (for grown ups)
1 T
honey (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix together oatmeal, cocoa mix and peanut butter. And honey, if using.
  2. Pour milk, or coffee, and stir in until mixture is well moistened.
  3. Spread mixture on a piece of plastic wrap and shape into a bar.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Notes

Make a separate batch for parents. You will also need plastic wrap.

If made with milk or yogurt, the bars will not keep for long, so eat them at breakfast.

If you are one of those parents who never have time for themselves, so breakfast is always difficult, use the coffee version. Make several bars at the beginning of the week and you'll be set all week! Multiply everything by 5 and you'll have plenty of bars for the school week. These coffee-chocolate bars can be frozen.
