Hi, I’m Kristen from Slender Kitchen and I am so happy to be sharing a recipe with you today.

Much like Ashley, about five years I knew absolutely nothing about the kitchen. Other than quick packaged meals and dinner disasters, not much happened in my kitchen. Over time this resulted in lots of wasted money spent on packaged foods and to an ever-expanding waistline. After one horrible day of bathing suit shopping, I finally decided to take action.

Knowing I couldn’t successfully lose weight with packaged frozen dinners, I set out to teach myself to cook delicious and healthy meals at home using whole foods and that’s how Slender Kitchen was born. My blog, Slender Kitchen, shares healthy recipes and complete meal plans that are healthy and most importantly delicious.

Today’s recipe is one of my favorite go-to breakfast recipes when I want a healthy breakfast option that I can take on the go. It’s packed with good for your ingredients that will keep you full of energy all morning, but tasty enough that any family member would be happy calling it breakfast.

Thanks again, Kristen, for your fantastic guest post! Make sure to head on over to her blog and show her some love.  Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!

    This is so interesting to me because I love steel cut oatmeal and eat a bowl almost everyday. These are my kind of breakfast bars! (Hope you’re having a great vacation, Ashley!)

    I love oatmeal bars for breakfast and as a snack. These look delicious! I love how the strawberries made the bars darker :D

    Did anyone try this recipe? I tried it and it was mushy and too much liquid that did not bake out. Wonder if I did something wrong or the amount of milk (used 1%) should be lowered.
