I have a question about the recipe "Oats and Quinoa Breakfast Bars" from CravingSomethingHealthy. how well do these travel? looking for snacks to make ahead of a full day of travel next week but the instructions say to refrigerate - wondering if they would hold up in my carry on?

My guess is that travelling with this wouldn't be a big deal. Americans (especially the privileged, college-educated types) seem to get worked up about food spoilage despite the fact that a huge number of people on this planet still don't have modern refrigeration.

If you're really worried, don't put it in your carry-on bag. Put it in your checked luggage which will sit in a unheated, unpressurized cargo bay. Air temperature at normal cruising altitudes (~35,000 feet) are sub-freezing.

Hi Emily - the bars won't spoil, but they will be soft. You can wrap them individually in plastic wrap and they'll travel better.
