Straight up I confess that I am not a morning person – I would love to be a morning person – you know the kind that hits the floor running every day……………….but that just isn’t me. When I first wake up I’m a zombie who can’t think about eating – let alone having to prepare something.

Buuuuuuuuut I do believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It kicks your metabolism into action, fuels you for that day and can really make a difference to how well you function.

For a while now, in my quest to find the perfect breakfast solution for me, I have been testing out different options. Pancakes are most defiantly a favourite!!! Still - not all the sustainable for every day - I would say that for me pancakes are the perfect breakfast for special occasions, or Sundays when you have a bit more time to sit and enjoy them!

Green smoothies have long been a favourite of mine – I promise that I will share some of my, quickest, easiest, yummiest breakfast green smoothies in the future. I like my green smoothies to be quick, fresh ad light but this can leave me a little hungry on occasion before lunch. Here is where these awesome little breakfast bars fit in.

They contain rice, oats, flax and almonds to slow down digestion and keep you going for longer. They are portable which means that if you’re like me in the mornings you can grab them and eat them on the go. They are super easy to make ahead of time and the best bit – they taste even better than peanut butter and jam on toast!!!!
