When I was asked to create a healthy breakfast recipe for Save Mart Supermarkets, I had to try something new.
I had never been to Save Mart before this week and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the customer service was great and I was able to find all of the ingredients that I needed for the breakfast oatmeal bars that I had dreamed up for this challenge!
|Whole grains, non-dairy milks.|
|Refrigerated non-dairy milks.|
|Greek-style non-dairy yogurt.|
|Great deal on berries!|
*Look for my notes following the recipe for sneaking in extra goodies!
Breakfast Oatmeal Bars
Makes 9 vegan, gluten-free bars
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup non-dairy milk (almond, soy, rice, coconut, etc.)
1 large extra-ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons nut butter (almond, peanut, etc.)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup non-dairy yogurt (soy, almond, coconut, etc.)
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper (or lightly oil the pan). Combine all dry ingredients (oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt) in a medium bowl and set aside.
- Put all wet ingredients (milk, banana, vanilla, nut butter, lemon zest, and yogurt) in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine. Fold in blueberries. Pour batter into the prepared pan...
Each bar contains approximately: 138 calories, 2 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 10 grams of sugar.
*Notes: Step 2 is where you can get "sneaky" if you wish. Feel free to add extra nut butter, veggies, protein powder, chopped nuts or seeds, or other extras here (see my Super Pancakes for more sneaky ingredient ideas)!
