The Edwards Dinner Party

Delicious Breakfast Bars + a Book Review

Leave a comment

Anyone who has known me for very long knows that I’m not much of a morning person. I wish I was! I always think one day when I’m a “real grown up” mornings will be easier, I will savor them, and pop out of bed with a smile on my face. Until then, I am always looking for a good way to have a nutritious and filling breakfast before work. To be honest, most days I’m eating a granola bar in the car!

When I found a recipe for Fully Loaded Breakfast Bars in My New Roots by cute blogger Sarah Britton, I knew I needed to try them!

The whole book is fun to flip through because of the gorgeous photography, creative recipes, and great tips Sarah weaves throughout. One really helpful section called “Stocking the Pantry” covers everything from different flours, beans v. legumes, and sweeteners. At the top of each recipe, there are little markers denoting if the recipe is vegan, gluten-free, or takes extra planning. The recipes is also divided by season and type of food: mornings, small measures (drinks and appetizers), mains, and sweets. The breakfast bar recipe is in the Early Summer section and I’m already excited to try Roasted Parsnips with Pomegranate Glaze and Za’atar this winter!

Dry Ingredients

These bars are gluten free and vegan! Instead of flour, Sarah substitutes white beans. Did you know that you can substitute beans for flour?! Very cool and it makes me feel extra healthy. They also have coconut oil, honey, pumpkin seeds, raisins  and dried apricots, making them a seriously delicious breakfast.

These bars have definitely made my morning routine better. I can’t wait to try more recipes from My New Roots!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
