So I have to admit, I’ve been really meh about breakfast lately. Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, but is often times the hardest, especially with kids. I mean, truth be told I used to be a cereal fanatic, like the cinnamon toast crunch, lucky charms kinda fanatic. I used to eat cereal for dinner sometimes because it was quick and tasty- but if we’re being completely honest, cereal isn’t the healthiest of breakfasts (or dinners) with all the added sugars and empty calories. Since giving up cereal years ago, I’ve been kinda stuck… trying to develop more breakfast recipes that are easy, quick, nutritious, filling and kid-friendly… These Rose Apple Amaranth Bars are all that and then some!

Or actually, it might even be the fact that they are colored naturally with Suncore Foods superfood, supercolor powders and hellooooo-
