Easy, Healthy, and Not as Hard as You Might Think!

Berry Breakfast Bars are one of my favorite easy, home-made breakfast recipes.   My usual go-to is quinoa mason jars, or something easy like overnight oats.   But sometimes I get a little bit fancy and make a homemade bar.

You may be thinking that these are probably super time-consuming and hard to make.  They are SUPER easy!  They are a tad crumbly but so delicious!  I love that they can be served warm or cold.  Berry Breakfast bars from Pennsylvania blogger Lyndsey of mommafitlyndsey.com // gluten free breakfast // vegan breakfast // healthy breakfast ideas // healthy breakfast recipes // vegan breakfast recipes // healthy bar recipe // low sugar bar recipe // clean eating breakfast recipes // what is clean eating // clean eating recipes for breakfast

Add in a little yogurt for an even heartier breakfast!

I love that this bar recipe is completely versatile.  You could eat them straight up as a bar (although I warn, they are crumbly!), or you could create a healthy breakfast parfait!  Try them warm with a little bit of greek yogurt on top.  To keep the recipe dairy free, opt for coconut or non-dairy yogurt.  Two of my favorite non-dairy yogurts are Silk almond yogurt and So Delicious coconut yogurt.  Berry Breakfast bars from Pennsylvania blogger Lyndsey of mommafitlyndsey.com // gluten free breakfast // vegan breakfast // healthy breakfast ideas // healthy breakfast recipes // vegan breakfast recipes // healthy bar recipe // low sugar bar recipe // clean eating breakfast recipes // what is clean eating // clean eating recipes for breakfast

Doubles as a dessert!

The amazing thing about these bars is that they could EASILY double as a healthy dessert.  Perfect for summer picnics, you could scoop this warm out of the oven and top with some vanilla frozen yogurt, or even some Halo Top!  Cool vanilla bean over warm and gooey berries sounds pretty amazing to me!Berry Breakfast bars from Pennsylvania blogger Lyndsey of mommafitlyndsey.com // gluten free breakfast // vegan breakfast // healthy breakfast ideas // healthy breakfast recipes // vegan breakfast recipes // healthy bar recipe // low sugar bar recipe // clean eating breakfast recipes // what is clean eating // clean eating recipes for breakfast

Kid-Friendly!

Hallelujah these are also kid-friendly!!!  As long as your kids are berry lovers (unfortunately mine are not) and don’t have nut allergies, these berry breakfast bars are perfect for them as well!

OK friends so you know I’m a breakfast lover, and its obvious that I’m a fan of sweets.  What are your favorite things to eat for breakfast?  Do you tend to eat savory or sweet in the morning?

Homemade Halloween Candy getting me all Pinterest-y just in time for Halloween!  I am generally all about the convenience over anything.  But in this case, I couldn’t resist giving these babies a try.  Surprisingly, they were a lot easier than I expected and I had two little helpers that made them that much better!   If kids can do it, we can do it right??

I previewed these over on my Instagram last week and y’all went insane.  Never have I had a recipe be more well received.  Well, these chicken tacos are pretty darn popular, but let’s be honest, they’re no chocolate!! So its pretty apparent that you all love chocolate as much as I do.  And you could eat it all day long.  So we need a darn good replacement for the real thing, right??

Homemade Halloween Candy {Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-free} Twix

Healthy Twix, you do exist!!! Every darn day I want chocolate. So instead of downing the real thing  I’m determined to find something that’s healthier. I’m not saying you can down a whole pan of these but they’re definitely a little healthier than downing a bag of Twix!

These were a HIT in my family.  So much so that when I went to blog them, half of the pan was gone.  So, you’ve been officially warned.  They won’t last long!

There are a few swaps you can make here!  I was running out of some of the main ingredients (raw maple syrup) and swapped out for raw honey.  I didn’t have almond butter on hand and used peanut butter instead.  Although I could definitely taste both ingredients, they were so yummy and a great variation from the original ingredients!

I could absolutely find a few other recipes to make a little cleaner!  What is your favorite Halloween candy? Post your favorites in the comments and we’ll see what we can do!
