Berry Breakfast Bars

Love these with my breakfast…and they are especially great if you need a little boost before your AM workout but don’t want to eat too much. Either way, these bars are a tasty way to start your day with balanced nutrition.

Ingredients:

1 cup raw oats

2/3 cup vanilla meal shake or energizing soy protein

2 tbsp cream cheese or tofutti, softened

1/4 cup pecans, chopped

2 1/2 cups strawberries, thawed and mashed

2 tsp vanilla extract

4 tsp unsweetened coconut, shredded

1/2 cup Kashi 7 whole grain nuggets cereal

Mix oats, meal shake. Combine cream cheese/tofutti, pecans, strawberries, vanilla and coconut. Blend with dry ingredients.  Add Kashi. Pour mixture on wax paper and roll into a log. Chill 30 minutes in freezer.  Makes 8-10 slices.  Store in freezer or fridge up to 5 days.

Note: You can roll the log itself in coconut or Kashi.  YUM!
