Now when I say “The BEST”, I don’t say that lightly. I realize that I’m making quite the bold statement over here! But Y’ALL. Oh my goodness. These baked oatmeal breakfast bars are truly amazinggggggg!
Also, you might be saying to yourself “Christine, where are the holiday recipes??”. I know, I know. Seems like that’s all I should be making these days! But I’m taking a little break from the holiday hustle and bustle this week since I started my holiday season a tad early and all (more on that in this Vegan Chickpea & Sweet Potato Bowls recipe post). Anyway, it’s like 75 outside as I’m writing this, so it’s a little bit tough to feel all festive. Don’t worry, cold front coming in tonight and I will hopefully be back to my usual, Christmas obsessed self!

And, of course, perfect to take on-the-go. Because REAL LIFE, right? Since the holidays are total madness for a lot of us, these baked oatmeal breakfast bars are really great for staying healthy and fueled. So maybe in a way these ARE a holiday recipe? Yeah? No? Ok, well I tried.
For these Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars, you’ll need oats (I love using rolled oats), sliced almonds, maple syrup, honey (or agave), almond butter (cashew butter would be yummy, too), cinnamon, chocolate chips, and protein powder. I personally love this vanilla protein powder, but there are tons of options out there!
