This breakfast bar checks all the boxes for me – easy to make that is packed with nuts, seeds, fruit, and grains. It has to be delicious and not taste as my husband would say – like chipboard.

I love to toast my oats and nuts for a deeper flavour, but you can skip this step if you are short on time.

These are great for breakfast on the go with some fresh fruit, and they also make a great snack.

Enjoy!
