Gluten-Free Oatmeal Protein Bars

Grab-and-Go Oatmeal Bars That Pack 17 Grams of Protein

Your alarm goes off, and you barely have enough time or energy to slip out of your PJs and into a decent outfit, let alone prepare a nutritious (and tasty!) breakfast. Boom! This recipe has your busy morning's back. Make it the night before, and you've got breakfast for the week.

Each chewy, nutty, and subtly sweet bar is 176 calories and offers 8.4 grams of fiber but only has 5.5 grams of sugar. Munch down two bars, and that's a 350-calorie breakfast with almost 17 grams of protein.

And did I mention they taste like cookies? Easy, quick, and yummy. Check out the simple recipe below.
