I’m always looking for healthy breakfast bars that fill me up and are tasty. I’ve always struggled with mornings and if it’s cold outside, you can’t drag me out of bed! (There is a reason that I moved to the south!) I try to avoid morning meetings at all costs but when I do have to run out the door, I want to grab a bar and know that I’m making a healthy food choice.
The Quaker Oats soft baked bars only have 140 calories and they provide 6g protein and 5g fiber that will help to fill you up and some B-vitamins that will go you a bit of an energy boost. It’s hard to find a bar that is less than 200 calories that has some protein and fiber. This was a bit sweeter than what I crave in the morning but it was a great treat without feeling like a splurge.
The Quaker Soft Baked Bar come in 2 flavors, banana nut bread and cinnamon pecan bread. The cinnamon pecan was the house favorite disappeared rather quickly! The bonus is that it doesn’t have to be warm to be tasty, although it is a nice option! One friend said that he could imagine heating it up and enjoying it on a cold winter morning all bundled up and sitting in this car waiting for the ice to thaw so he could head to work. I thought it was a pretty vivid description and I agree that heating it up gives the Quaker Oats bar is a wholesome food that gives it an edge over ordinary breakfast bars.
I think the Quaker Oats Soft Baked Bars are a nice breakfast snack on those mornings that you have to grab something and go and not worry about ruining your diet plan. I’m so glad they invited me to try them!
