It has finally stopped raining. After days of nonstop, insane rain that caused massive flooding and led to a road collapsing, it has finally stopped raining. The sun is actually poking through the clouds. For me this means one main thing: I can get back out and run again. So it felt appropriate to start my morning with some good running fuel in the form of these Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars.
What I like about these is that they are sweetened only by the dried fruit that you add to them. They taste very natural and even a bit savory with a nice hint of sweetness every time you get a bite with a piece of fruit. You can make them however you want. I used walnuts and sesame seeds and added chopped dates and dried apricots.
I ate mine straight out of the oven because I wanted something warm for breakfast. They were still a little soft, but they start to harden up and stick together better as they cool. I definitely recommend them for anyone looking for something healthy that they can take with them and eat in a pinch. Even a small square will fill you up nicely.
Enjoy the return of sunshine!
