Our school mornings are crazy busy!! It sounds funny to say that since school has only just begun.
I go into each child’s room at 7:00 am and open their blinds, letting the sun hit their sleepy faces.”
If I am lucky, after much prodding, our kids emerge by 7:30 somewhat dressed. Sometimes I don’t see them until 7:45 and they have to be out the door by 8:00 am. Once they get downstairs they are supposed to make their lunches and their breakfast.
The reality is, with less than 30 minutes to get ready, it is hard for the kids to have a nutritious breakfast. Here are two more delicious grab and go breakfast ideas: Egg Muffin Cups and Healthy Gluten Free Breakfast Donuts.
Oatmeal Breakfast Bars Save Time
My gluten free breakfast bar recipe is a nutritious snack bar that is insanely good. I load these bars up with protein and healthy ingredients…but don’t tell my kids!
These grab and go oatmeal breakfast bars are perfect for busy mornings like these so my kids can grab a nutritious bar on their way out the door. These bars have enough protein to keep them full until snack time.
You can even put these oatmeal bars into their lunchbox for a healthy mid-day snack. I put raisins in these oatmeal bars, but you can use any dried fruit.
**TIP: Make a double batch and freeze the extras. They defrost quickly for when you need them.
Fun Mix-Ins to Substitute:
You can also use any kind of nuts you like.
- dried fruit
- chocolate chips
- chia seeds
I would love to hear some of your strategies for getting your kids out the door for school in the morning :-).

Are you ready to make these bars?
Add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl. Use a whisk to mix these ingredients together.
Add your wet ingredients into a bowl and whisk. I whisk everything except the melted coconut oil, then temper by adding a little warm coconut oil at a time. This will prevent the oil from cooking the eggs.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour the mixed batter into a greased 8×8 baking dish. The batter is a bit thick so you will need to use a spoon to spread the mixture around.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until done.
