Eat Low-Fat Food

Hi! I'm a mom of 2 and I love tasty (and fatty) food (Really, who doesn't?)! I own my love for the lards of life, but I budget my fats daily or else I easily overspend. By living a low-fat lifestyle, I hope to develop super powers (or something comparable would suite me just fine). At the very least, I hope my cholesterol levels will be thanking me as I gracefully progress through the ages and stages of life. Follow me on my eating journey to a healthier lifestyle through delicious low-fat food.

Banana-Oat Breakfast Bars

Need a quick grab-n-go breakfast that you don't feel guilty about eating?  Sweetened slightly with natural ingredients, containing almost no fat, and overflowing with all the health benefits of oatmeal, you can feel good about eating these bars for breakfast (or packing in a lunch or serving for an after-school or late-night snack).  Say good morning to these Banana-Oat Breakfast Bars! 

I made these when the bananas on my counter were super-speckled and crying to be used in a baked good.  I searched the internet, used lots of different recipes for inspiration, and ended up with a great breakfast bar.
