My New Favorite Breakfast Bars

In the morning, there isn’t a lot of time to get breakfast ready. Yes, I wish I was that mom that woke up an hour earlier than the rest of the house and made fluffy pancakes with freshly squeezed orange juice, but I don’t know that woman and I don’t think I ever will.

I wake up and I get to work. There’s only so much time to get the kids ready and then I have to start writing for my three websites. It’s rough. So I need something quick and easy. Cereal usually works but 5 months straight of Chex can get a bit boring.



Well I’m tipping my hat to Bear Naked and Kashi GoLean granola bars. They give me the taste I want, the nutrients I need and put no stress on my schedule. I make my tea, grab a bar and get to business.

Bear Naked bars come in three flavors: Fruit + Nut, Chocolaty Chery, and Tropical Fruit.  These gems are have NO artificial flavors, cholesterol, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives. You CANNOT beat that.



Kashi GoLean Crunchy bars are filled with yummy goodness as well. Just LISTEN to the different flavors they come in: Chocolate Almond, Chocolate Caramel, Chocolate Peanut, Chocolate Pretzel and Chocolate Coffee Cake. Unbelievable!

Don’t limit these treats to the early morning. You can very easily throw these in your purse and eat them as a snack while on the go. My children enjoy munching on them while we run around as a family – which makes it easier for me to get my errands done.

Have you tried either brand? Which is your favorite flavor?
