Meal-Prep Granola Breakfast Bars

 

These granola breakfast bars are the answer to my breakfast riddle. I am the kind of guy who would rather sleep an extra 15-30 minutes than eat breakfast, so I rarely eat breakfast on a week day. These meal-prep granola breakfast bars are my answer to the question, “what should I eat for breakfast?”

My wife and I have been on a meal prep-Sunday kick here lately. This recipe is great for folks who are looking for meal-prep recipes. This recipe can be easily and quickly made Sunday evening in preparation for the work week.

$250 Cookie Recipe

There are probably thousands of some variation of this ground oatmeal, chocolate chip cookie running loose in the world.  There are probably as many stories out there as to where this recipe even originated.  I first ran across a version in Ann Hodge’s Beat This! Cookbook back in the day when I collected cookbooks.

I don’t believe this recipe actually hails from Neiman Marcus, Mrs. Field’s, or anywhere else.  I just know the urban legend that surrounds it.  Regardless, this makes a great cookie.  I usually serve these with hot chocolate New year’s Eve, unless of course I have made homemade cinnamon rolls.

When you make it, do not leave them in the oven longer than stated in the recipe, or any other version of this recipe you find.  It will turn into a moon rock.  This cookie will also go stale FAST, so be prepared to eat them the day you make them or have room in the freezer to put them up before they have a chance to dry out.

Peach Crumble

Peach Crumble is a recipe I saw on the local news when they were doing one of their featured recipe clips.  You know the ones I am talking about, every TV station seems to have one of those.  I usually don’t watch a whole lot of TV.  It tends to be running in the background though when others are in the house.

I have been so focused on fall recipes that it seems I have forgotten it is actually the end of summer.  Porter peaches are a pretty big deal around these parts.  I managed to miss that whole season and did not get one single Porter peach this year.  Shame too, they are actually really good!

Luckily, this recipe uses frozen peaches.  It also uses oats, and if you have read my apple crisp post, you know oats are not one of the things I like in my desserts. But, Andy did like it.  Said it reminded him of granola.  He likes that kind of thing.
