Breakfast on a Run

This post brought to you by Quaker Oats. All opinions are 100% mine.


Kids are dressed, teeth are brushed, lunches are packed. I am in a hurry as always. I am constantly repeating "makeup, hair, shoes" as I storm through the rooms. I don't want to forget anything. What do you think is worse – showing up at work without makeup or in two different color socks? I finally got kids into the car. Everyone is bukled in, kids have their snacks and happy as we are driving off the driveway. Hmm snacks…, ah? Where is my food? I forgot my own breakfast! AGAIN! What options do I have – skip breakfast or get something on the way? 

There is a third option, which requires a little prep work – emergency breakfast bar. I keep a box in the car in the colder months and just a bar or two in my purse the rest of the year.

Quaker Soft Baked Bar helps provide the FUEL you need with the FLAVOR you want! This new snack bar from Quaker is made with real fruits and nuts that you can eat on-the-go OR warm up in the microwave for a real bakery experience. Quaker Soft Baked Bars come in Cinnamon Pecan Bread and Banana Nut Bread flavors. Both look like delicious wholesome food, but I would especially love to try Banana Nut Bread.

On a second thought, Quaker Soft Baked Bars could also be my kids travel snacks. Living in the suburbs we spend a lot of time driving, so my kids go through bags of snacks fast, and I hate to go to the drive through for emergency food supply. I spend at least 5 minutes every day putting together breakfast snack – I could sure use this time on matching my socks or paying closer attention to the art of makeup.

  1. I’ve never tried these before and since I tend not to eat breakfast, these maybe a good replacement.

  2. Yum! These look delicious. We definitely have mornings where we are running out the door with no fuel. This would be a great alternative.

  3. I keep extra granola bars in the diaper bag just in case!
