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.

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?

    These look amazing! I’ve actually been thinking about what kind of snack I could make to bring on my upcoming flight and I think I’m going to go with these.

    Oh and I’m also a BIG fan of that So Delicious coconut yogurt! 🙂
