You love taco bars – now it’s time to try an oatmeal bar! Oatmeal is morning comfort in a bowl, and it can set your whole family up for success when you make it fun and let everyone customize their own. You can easily set it up in the morning, or prep toppings and add-ins the evening before (or even once a week). This way you can spend time enjoying breakfast together—or at least have fast, nourishing food for everyone to enjoy on their own time. Simple to keep allergy-free and special-diet friendly, you can start the day off right with a good breakfast, or hack your Sunday brunch with an oatmeal bar that family and friends will love!
