🍌 If you’ve been feeling a bit stuck in a loop with breakfast recently (and let’s face it, we all get like that!), these easy baked chewy bars do the trick especially if eaten alongside a smoothie to start the day!
A super easy recipe to whip up with kids, they also work well for a quick after school snack to tide over kiddos til tea. Filled with long lasting proteins, fats and natural sugars they’re a quick energy fix that should help offer some sustaining power for a while.
