Busy Morning Breakfast Bars With Superfoods

A honey nut chia inulin breakfast bar on a wooden table.


Every morning is an adventure at my house.

Getting children out of the house on time, with all of their belongings, and with a good breakfast is hard work. And breakfast is the hardest part. My children drag their feet in the morning and, sometimes, have to walk out the door with cereal in one hand and milk in the other.

That’s not bad, but I know it’s hard to make it to lunchtime on nothing but cereal and milk.

A couple of years ago, I began experimenting with different breakfast bar recipes that my children could grab and take with them. I started out with some ingredients that were less than healthy, then slowly transitioned them over to a healthier, more rounded recipe.

This recipe is one of their all-time-favorites. These bars are low in refined sugars and high in protein and fiber from Wildly Organic Agave Inulin!

They are especially good dunked in milk!

Make These Breakfast Bars Your Own!

You can substitute several things in for the items I have included.

For example, Wildly Organic Pumpkin Seeds can be used in place of dried cranberries.

You can add your favorite nuts, too. Wildly Organic has a large selection of organic, raw, soaked, and dried, nuts. And you can use any variety of Wildly Organic Nut Butters in lieu of peanut butter.

Don’t be afraid to make this recipe your own!

A Little About Agave Inulin

No matter what you substitute, keep the agave inulin.

Why inulin? Agave inulin is one of those ingredients with multiple benefits. It’s high in fiber and adds sweetness to recipes without skyrocketing your blood sugar. It’s also prebiotic — meaning, it feeds the good bacteria in your intestines and helps promote healthy digestion.

I love that my children are getting the day off to a good start with plenty of protein and fiber. They think they’re getting a sweet treat for breakfast. Shhh… don’t give away my little secret.

Starting your family’s day on the right food has never been easier (or tastier).
