Diabetic Breakfast Bars

What a perfect diabetic breakfast that you can make ahead and eat all week during a busy work week:) These diabetic breakfast bars are a perfect low carb breakfast for those of us with diabetes or anyone eating low carb.  They are a family favorite at my house too!! My kids love them in their lunches instead of a sandwich and they are full of nutrients.  You can change up the nut butter too.  Last time I made them, I used 1/2 almond butter and 1/2 cashew butter.  Peanut butter is an amazing option too!!

I use natural nut butters with no additional sugar to keep the carbs even lower for these diabetic breakfast bars.

When I’m making these super healthy bars for my kids, sometimes I will add dark chocolate chips to the top.  The other day they added a few peanut m & m’s from their halloween candy.  I figured if they each ate 2-3 candies per serving, it wasn’t the end of the world.

Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Grease a small casserole dish (mine is 9" x 7"). If you use a bigger dish, the nut bars will be thinner & need less baking time.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting (they are crumbly if not refrigerated).
Recipe Notes

I have used other nut butters too:) I've used all almond butter or all cashew butter, they have all turned out delicious!

You can add dark chocolate chips for a treat and nuts too!

You can also double the recipe for these diabetes breakfast bars, my kids think they are delicious!

These are perfect to make for a whole week of breakfasts.  Diabetes is enough to manage, why not have these diabetes breakfast bars cut and take one on the go, for a quick breakfast!

For the sweetener, recently I’ve started adding no applesauce or honey.  I added 1 tbs of truvia and it tasted great!!

    Do you use the honey and applesauce or do you use one or the other?

    How many carbs do you think this has? My husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes and we were told to do low carb. He takes meds every 6 hrs so he needs something to eat/ munch on with his meds at 2am..

      I’d say about 6-8 carbs per serving, depending on how large the slices. I’m working on adding all the nutritional info to each recipe, it’s just taking me a lot of time:)
