The Gardeners Kitchen : Choosing a Breakfast Bar

Updated on February 12, 2018

Selecting a Breakfast Bar

The first step when choosing a breakfast bar is to determine what you actually want.

Are you looking for a counter in a domestic kitchen at which light meals may be eaten. In which case this type of breakfast bar may be a built-in, fold-down breakfast bar which often comes with two or more stools for seating.

Some models have four drawers and two cabinets which provides you with plenty of space to store kitchen essentials. This may be a storage and eating table on wheels that can be rolled into palce when needed and rolled aside when not, very handy for small spaces.

We were just looking at a house we may purchase and this mobile unit may be perfect for the breakfast nook. It also features 4 casters for mobility when you want it and a sturdy cutting surface when you need it.

In addition there is a built-in spice rack, towel bar, and paper towel holder to make preparing meals a piece of cake.

Or are you looking for a quick and esay to prepare breahfast snack in a bar shape?

A Breakfast Bar

The house we were looking at the other day would benefit from a breakfast bar,, the kitchen is large and L-shaped band the bar could act as a divider or be placed in the bottom L turning it into a breakfast nook with a plus, either way something to thing about.


But back to the breakfast bar, the kind you eat. Now on a morning when there is little time to have a decent breakfast before heading out to wherever you head out to, a breakfast bar that you can eat on the go may be just the thing. So here is one  I make, now and again.


Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Bars


  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsps skim milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 3 cups oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries



1-Pre-heat oven to 350.

2- Add melted butter, apple sauce, egg, milk and vanilla.

3- Add combined flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.

4- Mix well.

5- Stir in oats and raisins.

6- Spread dough into an ungreased 13 x 19 inch baking pan.

7- Bake 25-30 minutes.

This will make approximately about 32 bars.


Now you can sit at your breakfast bar and enjoy a cup of organic, fair trade coffee while munching on a homemade breakfast bar. Be sure to take a couple of BBs with you to munch on wherever you go, saves standing in line and a couple of bucks.
