Homemade High-Fiber Breakfast Bars

Save

Homemade high-fiber breakfast bars are an excellent choice for your first meal of the day. Fiber is one of the most important parts of your diet, according to the Mayo Clinic. Dietary fiber helps to soften stools and normalizes bowel movements. Fiber also helps maintain bone health and integrity, lowers blood cholesterol levels, helps control blood sugar levels and aids in weight loss. Meals that are high in fiber are more filling, according to KidsHealth.org. Homemade high-fiber breakfast bars are cost-efficient and relatively easy to make.

Homemade Fiber One Bars

  • Store-bought Fiber One bars are an excellent breakfast choice, but can run a bit on the pricey side depending on your budget. To make homemade Fiber One bars you’ll need 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, 7 oz. marshmallow cream, ¼ cup peanut butter chips, ½ cup flax seed, 1 cup Grape-Nuts cereal, 3 cups Fiber One cereal and 1 cup Rice Krispies, according to RecipeZaar.

    Spray a 9-by-13 inch pan with cooking spray to begin making your homemade Fiber One bars. Chop the semisweet peanut butter chips and combine all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl. Place your marshmallow cream into a medium-sized saucepan and melt it into the sweetened condensed milk with low heat. Stir the mixture constantly until the marshmallow cream melts and combines with the milk. After the marshmallow cream is melted add the dry ingredients to the mixture. After the dry ingredients are fully mixed, spread the mixture into your prepared pan. Let the mixture cool, then cut into miniature homemade Fiber One bars.

Why Should You Eat a High-Fiber Bar for Breakfast?

  • Meals that are high in fiber are an excellent choice for your first meal of the day compared to a bowl of cereal. Many types of cereal, such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch, have over 9 g of sugar resulting in a sugar high and a crash later in the day. High-fiber bars are a better option because they still provide you with a quick boost of sugar to start your day, but also have fiber to sustain you throughout the rest of your day, or at least until you eat lunch. High-fiber bars are also fairly easy to make, and if you make them at the beginning of the week, store them in your refrigerator for several days of quick breakfasts.
