I love to snack. I have never been good with just breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love grabbing something quick in between meals. Unfortunately, if I don't have something healthy, I end up eating just anything lying around.
Yea, not good.
I love oats and making oat bars. It's awesome how you can take a pile of oats and add different things and create different bars and snacks. This combination is wonderful and I've made these several times and we just love them!
Great to have around when you're in that snacking mood!
