Healthy Breakfast Bars – refined sugar free for breakfasts on the go

Breakfast Bars

With all the best intentions and planning, getting out the door in the morning for us is always a scramble, every day!  It’s my least favourite part of the day, I’m sure if I went to bed earlier we would be in a much better place in the mornings but I never do! Anyway, somedays breakfast “on the go” is required and so these healthy (refined sugar free) Breakfast Bars are just the ticket.

They are so easy to make and if you don’t have brown puffed rice handy (I know, I know, it’s up there with kale on the yeah right stakes, but I like it!) and you don’t mind about sugar then Rice Bubbles/Crispies are the substitute to go for and probably more likely already in your pantry right?  Actually another name for this would be Granola Rice Bubble Slice. Call it what you will, here is how you make it!

Healthy Breakfast Bar Slice

You will need 2 cups of my granola, which has it’s very own recipe here.  When I’m making it for this slice though I make it without the almonds so that it can go to our nut free school for recess as well. Once you try my granola I think you will be hooked, we are and so always have a batch made up.  You could use a store bought one though if you want to.  Did I also mention it’s no bake and it’s one you could probably get the kids to make themselves!!  Getting better by the minute isn’t it!

  3. Tip into the prepare tin and press down with the back of a spoon so that it's even

Healthy Breakfast Bars

Eating this on the way to school perhaps with some fruit will fill them up and get you there on time.  It’s also a great one to snack on during the day too.

I’m still working on how to get the froth right on my coffee machine!

How are you in the mornings?  A mad scramble like us or, if not what is your secret?

    Hi – what would you use instead of oats to make the granola gluten free?

    The breakfast bar look lovely.

      Hi, thank you. You could use rice flakes or quinoa flakes, if nuts aren’t a problem I’d add some more nuts in too.

    Oh my goodness they look so good and I think I would actually have a chance of getting my girls to eat them (the big one, anyway!). Totally pinning this for trying later, thank you for sharing!

    These look delicious – anything with homemade granola gets my vote! I love that it’s no bake too, just eat and go!

    YUM! I had to giggle at your coconut oil comment. I find it so different to bake/work with coconut oil here compared to New Zealand (where it is in a constant state of HARD). These look so yummy and simple and perfect for lunch boxes!

    This is a lot like the Thermomix breakfast bars, they are a go to recipe in my house! I substitute the honey with Rice Malt syrup as I don’t love honey, and these bars are delicious!!
