Freezer-friendly Berry Breakfast Bars
I have never had a Poptart. Well not any time that I can remember anyway.
I remember Mum not letting us have them because she’d heard the filling gets ridiculously hot even when the outside is cool and kids have suffered terrible burns from them.
Ahh the things you think about when you’re a mum right?
I’d say that was her excuse but the real reason was that they were full of rubbish she didn’t want us to eat (fair enough Mum!).
I wouldn’t want my little guys eating them either – are they even still available? – but I do see that the convenience factor is high.
They’re basically a full breakfast you just grab, throw in the toaster and serve. Easy peasy.
You’d probably get more nutritional value from them eating a piece of cardboard though.
I’ve got a recipe today that is just as easy peasy but actually ticks most of the nutritional boxes that breakfast should.
Fruit – check
Healthy fats – check
Good carbs – check
Protein – at least more than a pop tart
Delicious – check
Passes the kid test – check
These berry breakfast bars are perfect as a quick breakfast for anyone from toddlers to big kids like me.
They freeze really well so you can make a big batch then just defrost whenever you need a quick, easy, healthy breakfast.
They’d also be great for breakfast on the go. Well maybe more for us than little kids.
They would seriously mess up a car seat as their a bit crumbly but perfect for at the table.
Now I know the recipe is a hit I’m working on some more filling ideas. I’m thinking apple pie would be rather delicious or maybe a pumpkin pie version when pumpkins are in season?
What about you? Have you ever had a pop tart?
