It really does seem like most mornings despite how much prep I do the night before, we still struggle to get out the door on time. While I grew up eating a warm breakfast most mornings, due to Nia's lack of interest and my lack of sleep I rarely get that opportunity, but when I do my favorite go-to breakfast for the family is a pot of oatmeal and boiled eggs.
|I love cute packaging!|
- It could potentially solve my morning breakfast dilemma
- We had a couple huge snow storms coming our way and could lose power, hence needed shelf stable food (at the time of this writing we're expecting 2-4" more on top of the existing mess O_o)
I went with chocolate:
With many healthy foods, there's often the concern that taste is compromised and I admit I thought Bobo's Oat Bars might be dry, but surprisingly they weren't at all. I tried some of Nia's peach bar she selected and found the dried fruit to be a welcome addition. The peach flavor along with the cranberry orange are my favorites so far, and lately after 4a.m. wake-ups when I'm dragging on my way to school drop off, pairing a cup of coffee with a Bobo's Oat Bar that I keep stashed in the diaper bag is just enough to revive me on the drive from school to the Y so I can complete my workout.
Oh and about the snow storm issue: Bobo's Oat Bars make a fantastic, healthy, shelf-stable addition to your pantry. I checked the expiration date on the batch of bars I received and was pleased to see they are fresh through July 2015. There are no funky ingredients either to make them that way - I can recognize and pronounced everything on the label. I set them right up on a kid-accessible shelf in the pantry and we're good to go!
