Oatmeal is a superfood because it has the right carbohydrates your body needs and it has the natural ability to lower the cholesterol rate in the body. It is full of fiber and keeps you feeling full for a longer time and subsides the sugar cravings. It is also low in saturated fats with zero cholesterol, sodium and sugar which is why it makes for a perfect breakfast option.
You can also add any other whole-grains like quinoa or puffed brown rice to this recipe along with oats. Add your choice of veggies like grated carrots or zucchini, any seasonal or even frozen fruit to the bars to fill up the nutrition even more. You can also add your favourite spices like cinnamon or nutmeg or even pumpkin pie spice for their anti-oxidant properties. It’s best to stick to using dark chocolate chips with at least seventy percent or more cacao in them to maximize the benefits of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is a good source of antioxidants that fight free radicals to some extent that cause cancer and other illnesses. Additionally, dark chocolate has iron and magnesium that help fight low energy levels and combats lethargic feeling. To this recipe, you can add different types of nuts like pecans, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews or seeds like sunflower seeds, hemp, chia or pumpkin seeds, etc. If you like goji berries and cranberries you can throw some into these bars that add to the nutrition. You can customize the taste and make these bars your signature recipe.
