Soft Baked Bars from @Quaker

I've always been a fan of Quaker oatmeal and Quaker granola bars, and now I'm really looking forward to trying the new  Quaker Soft Baked Bar.  They come in two flavors, Banana Nut Bread and Cinnamon Pecan Bread.  Both sound really good, but I'm leaning toward the Cinnamon Pecan Bread.  It just plain sounds good!  I really love cinnamon in about anything - always put it in my oatmeal - and it's also really good for you.  These bars contain real fruit and nuts and are easy to grab when you're on the go.  Or, for a special treat, heat them in the microwave for a fresh-baked taste.
Because I'm home in the mornings, I have a lot of different things for breakfast.  I have time to cook some oatmeal or make an omelet if I want.  I can even enjoy my own fresh-baked muffins or breads if I want to take the time to make them.  However, the rest of my family is often running out of here in the mornings, oftentimes without eating anything for breakfast.  (Jeffrey does usually have something he eats at work) Having some of these Quaker Soft Baked Bars on hand for them to grab and take with them would be so handy and a great way to make sure they start their day with some wholesome food.  They'd be more likely to eat something if it's handy, easy to take with them, and tastes good.  Quaker says, "With flavors you'll love and nutrients to help fuel you, you'll be a morning person in one delicious bite."  I don't think even these will turn Beth into a morning person, but I would like to see her eat something in the mornings - something that's not junk.

These treats aren't just tasty, but are packed with:
• 140 calories
• 5g of Fiber
• 6g of Protein
• Excellent source of 5 B-Vitamins
so definitely not junk!
While I think these bars will make a great  breakfast snack, I think they'd also be handy and nutritious for any time of day.  I especially like having a granola bar or something like this that I can grab and take along when I go grocery shopping.  That way I have something to eat if/when I get hungry, something to give me the energy to finish my shopping - and you know what they say about shopping on an empty stomach!
