We love grabbing a breakfast bar on our way out the door. We're sharing our favorite healthy breakfast bars! We'll also bust some of the myths around whether or not granola or oatmeal breakfast bars are fattening or actually healthy!
Whether you're making or buying bars, you want to look for a few things.
Each bar should:
This is easier to see if it's a store-bought bar; however, the recipes we'll share below are AMAZING.
They are whole foods, and you know exactly what you're eating! We love to make a batch and freeze them too!
However, if you have to buy pre-made bars. Here is our recommendations on brands.
Each of these links go to Amazon. We are affiliates with them.
These brands typically pack in preservatives and added sugar - even if they are marketed as a healthy choice.
Below are some of our favorite healthy breakfast bars! We've tried to include vegan and gluten-free breakfast bars as well.
Some of the options may be a little lower in fiber or protein, but we allowed it since it's homemade.
The type of marketing mentioned above is why we tend to get snotty about labeling anything a healthy breakfast bar. We've also shared a few of our favorite protein bar brands along with how to read the ingredients before. Below, we'll hit on whether or not a breakfast bar is a good or bad choice when it comes to weight loss.
Just like anything it depends. Someone may say they had pizza last night but a cauliflower crust veggie pizza is a lot different than a large Papa John's! Same goes with every type of food!
Typically a granola or snack bar will contain oats, nuts, and something to sweeten it up like chocolate or dried fruit. If you're following one of the recipes above, you'll be good! If you're looking for a store brand, check the ingredient list just like you would if you were following a recipe! Choose real foods over additives.
Just make sure to refer back to the rules above: under 200-300 calories and 3grams of fiber and protein!
