Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Bars; Brown Bag Series #6

In my brown bag this week: Make Ahead Oatmeal Breakfast Bars.  I have way to much going on in the morning to worry about preparing breakfast or lunch.  So I try and get that all done the night before. This way when 6:30 rolls around and I'm rushing out the door I can just literally grab and go.

This breakfast bar is quick to put together and easily adaptable so you can feel like your eating something different every day.

Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Bars
2/3 cup oats
2 tbsp nut butter(almond, peanut, cashew)
1/2 scoop protein powder (vanilla, chocolate)
1/4 cup of milk (skim, almond, coconut)
handful of chopped dried fruit (cherries, cranberries, raisins)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice

Combine oats, nut butter and protein powder together.  Mixture will be crumbly. Add milk and mix until moistened. Stir in the dried fruit and spices of your choice.  Press evenly into the bottom of a small pan or a plate. Refrigerate over night or longer. Cut into bars.


  1. This looks so good FHG! I just might make these this week. I might also add chocolate chips for the heck of it!

  2. Yumm! I'm going to pin this now and make later! Thaks!

  3. Can you confirm if it's two thirds of a cup of Oats or Two to Three cups of Oats please?
