Berry Simple Breakfast Bars

berry.simple.breakfast.bars

I got the idea for this recipe from Pinterest and tweaked it a bit to make a healthier version. It combines three of my favorite things that I eat almost daily: oats, berries, and dark chocolate. I ended up eating most of the bars as dessert, but they would work great for breakfast as well. Bake on a Sunday and have breakfast ready for the week or take to a family dinner for a healthy alternative to cakes or pies.
