Healthy Snack 101 : Muesli Bar Goodness

Perhaps you're making a conscious decision to eat well?
A nourishing brekkie, yummy lunch and even taking care of a healthy dinner for yourself too.
Eating well makes everything in your life that much better.
So what do you do when you're away from home and hunger strikes?
Instinctively, our bodies' natural response when we're hungry and not fed is to reach for easily converted energy foods.


Whether it be for your mid-morning, afternoon or weekend snack try these delicious muesli bars and enjoy the feeling of sustained energy and delicious bites!

They're simple, store well and are packed full of slow-releasing energy and quality fats in the form of oats, nuts & eggs, they are also free of refined sugar!

These muesli bars are simple to make and great for (big) kids as well! I often make these quickly on a weekend whilst prepping lunch or dinner and by the time I’m done with that, these guys are ready – it really is that simple. Slice into bars and you’re set for the week, organised and confident to avoid the vending machine, cafe snacks or emergency block of chocolate!
