Is oatmeal a macro balanced meal?

While oats are a healthy carb choice, when eaten by themself they are not necessarily the best balanced breakfast choice as they come up short on protein and healthy fats.

This recipe includes the addition of berries – which adds to the fiber and micronutrient content. The eggs also up the protein count.

But to make this a true macro balanced breakfast, I suggest having an egg or two with these breakfast bars or some high protein greek yogurt. You can also top with peanut butter to up the healthy fats. Yum!

Alternatively, you can add some collagen protein powder to these baked oatmeal bars to up the protein content.

Berry Baked Oatmeal Bars Ingredients

You will need:

  • Milk – you can use regular milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • Eggs
  • Maple syrup – can also use honey
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Oats – make sure to grab gluten free if that is your preference.
  • Baking powder
  • Berries – your choice of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or a mixture of all berries. Feel free to use fresh or frozen but I prefer fresh in this recipe because they are not as liquidy.


Vegan – in order to make these berry baked oatmeal bars vegan, skip the eggs and add 1 mashed ripe banana to the mixture or you can use a chia seed egg (1 tablespoon of chia seeds to 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for 10 minutes before adding it to the mixture). Also swap the milk for plant milk, coconut or almond milk.

Gluten-free – to ensure this recipe is gluten free you need to use certified gluten free oats.

  • Maple syrup – substitute for agave syrup or honey.
  • Berries – you can play with the fruits; this is really delicious with bananas or peaches.
  • Make it sweeter – add 1/4 cup applesauce or mashed banana to the mix.
