Healthy Lemon Chia Oat Bars
I came up with this when I wanted a quick, healthy breakfast that I could grab while I was taking care of a newborn. I had to omit dairy, eggs, and wheat from my diet due to her allergies. This recipe is the result of a desire to have my baked goods and make baby happy too.
You can also use a 9x9-inch baking dish in place of the miniature baking dish. After baking, cut into nine bars while in the pan. Using a spatula, remove the cut bars onto a cooling rack to cool.
You can substitute ground flax meal for chia seeds.
You can substitute egg in place of chia seeds-water mix.
You can substitute corn syrup or sugar for honey.
You can substitute almond butter or other nut or seed butter for oil (and omit lemon extract).
