On the Go Raspberry Baked Oatmeal

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to breakfast whatever is quickest or easiest isn’t that appealing. And with the start of school and mornings getting busier and busier I decided it was a good time to create a simple fun and delicious on the go breakfast that both you and the whole family will enjoy!

These raspberry baked oatmeal bars are a super easy option as you make them the night before, store in the fridge and serve as bars in the morning. You can use them as an on the go breakfast, snack, topping for yogurt, or even with a little vanilla ice cream for dessert!

Not to mention that if you’re giving this to little hands in the morning it’s not a crumbly dry bar so the mess in the minivan is minimal! It is also a recipe that can be tweaked to match your taste! I use raspberries in this recipe, but you could easily switch it out for blueberries, blackberries, or your favorite dried fruit!

I use chocolate chips in this recipe, but you could sub for cacao nibs! The amount of honey is also optional! I find that feeding it to little ones it’s better to keep the honey and mini-chocolate chips in, but as an adult, I don’t mind having them be a little less sweet.

SO now that we have established how awesome these bars are here is the recipe!

Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.

Mix all of the dry ingredients, including the raspberries and dates.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and milk together and then combine with the dry ingredients.

Let cool, cut into squares and serve, or wrap individually for an on the go breakfast or snack!

Enjoy!
