It’s fun to make pancakes on a lazy Sunday, but when you are rushed during the week, these grain-free breakfast bars are perfect. They are great with eggs, or can stand alone, loaded with butter. You can make them ahead, wrap them in individual portions and refrigerate or freeze them. They are loaded with nutrition, simple and satisfying!

When you are gluten-free or grain-free it’s a challenge to find a healthy bread substitute that’s easy to make.There are lots of gluten-free breads on the market, but many are made with very starchy substitutes that have not been properly prepared. I do not like most gluten-free breads or baked goods for this reason.

Here is a simple and nutritious bread substitute that is made with whole ingredients that will add nutrition, not take it away. Slice the bar lengthwise and toast. Add lots of butter and eat with eggs or other protein for a satisfying meal!
