The Best Breakfast Bars You Will Ever Have!

The Best Breakfast Bars You Will Ever Have!

IMG_8372[1]

I absolutely love when things are simple and straight forward–especially recipes! I want all the ingredients to be in my kitchen ready to go. Let’s be honest, how often does that actually happen? Almost never, huh? Well, that’s about to change after you take a look at my next recipe: Almond Butter Breakfast Bars–using basic health food ingredients. If you are a health nut like me, you will have every single one of these ingredients in your cupboard and if you don’t, I will give you a great substitute!

I know eating healthy can get expensive so I wanted to share with you where I get all of my ingredients from: Vitacost.com. It’s an online super store and they sell everything health related: food, vitamins, supplements, protein bars and powders, diet products and even beauty and personal care. It’s the cheapest I have found and you can get everything in one big haul that’s delivered the next day!

IMG_5647

Mix dough ingredients together with a fork. (If dough is too sticky, add another tsp of oat flour) Roll out dough on parchment paper until it’s a 1/8 inch thick. Cut out 2 rectangle shapes. Repeat with excess dough. Mine made 4 rectangles about 1 inch wide and 1.5 inch long. Place rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set aside. In a small pan on medium-low heat, sauté filling ingredients. Use a small whisk to stir and break up raspberries. Once most of the water has disappeared, you should have a thick saucy like texture. Spoon raspberry sauce onto two of the rectangles leaving a little room around the edge. Cover the raspberry sauce with the remaining rectangles and use a fork to press the edges together. Bake for 6-7 minutes at 350f. Once cooled top with coconut butter and enjoy!
