Apparently I’m on a bit of a breakfast bar kick. First the Fiber One Streusel Bars, and now these Nature Valley Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares.
Since I love stirring blueberries into my oatmeal, I had to give this baked version a try. As the name would suggest, they are, in fact, soft. Not chewy-soft like a granola bar, but soft like a fresh chocolate chip cookie. And it’s packed with good stuff like blueberries, whole wheat flour and 15 grams of whole grains. That’s over 30% of your recommended amount for the day—not a bad start!
While breakfast bars are usually relegated to grab-and-go territory, there’s no reason you can’t eat this one at home. The drizzle of icing on top is a nice touch and makes it feel special enough for a plate, served with a cup of coffee.
Look for Nature Valley Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares in the cereal aisle of your local grocery store. Find a retailer near you.
