Gingerbread Breakfast Bars Recipe

No matter which holiday you're celebrating during the winter season, it's a time for giving and connecting with family. Unfortunately, it can also be a stressful time full of everything busy. Meal planning and making breakfast ahead of time can help take some of the load off. That’s where these yummy gingerbread breakfast bars come in! I like to make breakfast bars the night before so they’re ready to go in the morning. I’m a night owl by nature so I have more energy and brainpower at night anyway. Even if you’re a morning person these are quick enough to throw together in the morning for an easy breakfast.

These gingerbread bars almost taste like cake and who doesn’t like cake for breakfast?? For those of us with babies and toddlers, they’re soft enough for little ones to chew with ease. Even my picky toddler gobbles up these gingerbread breakfast bars.

One of the key ingredients that give gingerbread its iconic flavor is molasses. I generally go for sweeteners that won’t spike my blood sugar, but molasses is a must here. It’s mildly sweet and has iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and vitamin B6. Make sure you opt for non-GMO blackstrap molasses since it’s the healthiest and highest in nutrients!

Molasses can be overwhelming, so I’ve still used some Wildly Organic Coco Monkey Sweetener to increase the sweetness a bit. I love this sweetener because it’s low-glycemic and makes my blood sugar happy. My son doesn’t do well with too much sugar either – it makes him cranky, crazy, and unfocused. The combination of molasses and coco-monkey is the perfect match for happy blood sugar and happy taste buds.

This recipe calls for 1/2 cup of your nuts or seeds of choice. Don’t worry, Wildly Organic has you covered with so many options! Maybe some Wildly Organic Pumpkin Seeds? Or how about some soaked and dried Wildly Organic Pecans? We think Wildly Organic Walnuts would also make a great option. Our favorite is a mixture of pumpkin seeds and pecans, but try whatever combination you like best! Don’t forget the dried fruit! Dried cranberries, Wildly Organic Goji Berries, and dried apples all are delicious in these gingerbread breakfast bars!
