Healthy snacking made easy! How about some no refined sugar, protein-enriched protein granola bars? These are crunchy, fragrant with chewy bits (the dried goldenberries) and so delicious. A flavourful delight!

These bars can be whipped up in 20 mins and they bake in under 20 mins. These are ideal as a portable breakfast, packed lunch or as a pre or post-workout snack. Caution though: if you are taking these to work, pack extra as your colleagues will want some!!!

These granola bars are enriched with chia and flaxseed, adding a protein, fibre and omega-3 boost. They keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks in a sealed airtight container and also freeze well. I like to make a big batch and freeze some for weeks ahead.
