As a kid, breakfast was never my favourite meal. I think it was because I was never a morning person and I always woke up too late so left home in haste for school. To be honest, there have been many days where I skipped breakfast as a teenager or even younger. ย Of course, back then I wasnโ€™t into nutrition and just failed to understand the importance of breakfast. But hey, this gives me an excuse to blame some of my not-so-good grades on breakfast haha! ๐Ÿ˜›
Safe to say, I got more serious about brekkie as I got older; now I have no days where I go without breakfast! But I am still quite time poor in the morning (because I still continue to maintain my laziness in the morning), I usually prepare my breakfast the night before. If this fails, I grab my Belvita biscuits or reach for a banana!
Anyway, I recently tried out oat bars to have for my brekkie. To my surprise, it turned out pretty amazing. Itโ€™s actually pretty nutritious because it combines everything youโ€™d normally have for breakfast in a slice. I myself found that they tasted better with topped with yoghurt but it tasted pretty good just on its own as well.
