Happy Monday and happy Memorial Day!

While I am guessing that many of you are NOT reading blogs today due to many outdoor activities and warm-weather fun, I still wanted to share a delicious recipe with all of you.

You see, tomorrow I go back to school!  My summer semester begins, which means that it’s time for me to get back into a schedule, meal prep each weekend, and plan my workouts ahead of time (those are the things that keep me sane when times are crazy!).

These millet breakfast bars are coming at you today because I love making a batch on the weekend so that I can enjoy an easy breakfast during the week.

These bars are SO filling, chewy, slightly bananay, and they have just the right amount of sweetness.  When I enjoy a bar for breakfast, sometimes I’ll have one (or two) all by itself, put a little nut butter on top, enjoy it with a side of fruit, or enjoy it with a hard boiled egg.  The options are pretty endless and all really depend on your hunger level that day 🙂

You may remember that I was on a millet kick a while back?  Well, I’m not eating it with every meal every day…but I do love the nutty little grain!

Here are the ingredients that really make these bars amazing:

  • Millet | high in phosphorus, copper, fiber and magnesium
  • Oats | slow digesting carbohydrate (keeps you fuller for longer), also high in fiber
  • Hemp Seeds | good source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids
  • Coconut Sugar | less processed than white sugar, lower glycemic index (so no sugar crash later in the morning)
  • Banana | high in potassium and naturally sweet
  • Flax | good source of fiber, manganese, vitamin B1, and omega 3 fatty acids

  1. These look so tasty!! I love weeks when I take the time to prep ahead for quick breakfasts!

  2. These look delicious! They remind me of when I made Quinoa bars – I used them as fuel for an 8 hour race.

    Millet is such a great idea – I’m addicted to millet seeds in bread. 🙂
