oatmeal bars

With school back in full swing, making sure kids of all ages have something delicious and filling to eat is always a priority.

Cinnamon and chocolate chips mixed with rolled oats and a few other ingredients create a thick, chewy and tasty breakfast bite we love to enjoy with a cup of yogurt or berries. These oatmeal bars can be tucked into a lunch box and also make a great after school snack.
