Oatmeal Bars On-The-Go

Weelicious's picture
These oatmeal bars are different from the brand name bars you'll find in the stores. They are essentially oatmeal in bar form, but they are equally delicious. Just prepare a batch and keep them in the fridge for several days. All you have to do as you're heading out for the day is grab a few bars for you and your kids and you're set. For all of you "on-the-go" moms, this bar's for you.
