You know those mornings where you just can't be bothered? No time for breakfast, no time to grab snacks (despite having a full day). It just feels like you're wading through mud. Well, in that sense, my life has felt like mud recently! On such occasions, items pre-made and ready to grab'n'go are seriously useful. That is how these yummy, nutty and seriously chunky breakfast bars came to be. Full of natural energy and ingredients that will keep you full till lunch (unlike those pesky cereals that claim they will and you're hungry 30 minutes later - am I right?!) Also great to keep you going mid afternoon, as a snack before the gym or, well, for general snacking. Because, well, snacking is great.
I'm afraid my scales went on the blitz just as I was making these so the measurements are in american cups. Other than this, they are super simple and quick to make and can stay in the fridge for a couple of weeks (covered) and will be perfectly fine.
Play around with the flavours and spice- there's no pesky ingredients that mean this needs to be cooked before tasting. So have a taste and add and subtract the spices as you please. I'm a ginger lover, but maybe at this festive time of year mixed spice is more your bag. Go for it- life's just that good ;)
