My sister Amy Janda is the queen of healthy treats and desserts, and she’s got another recipe for you!
Check it out:
“Muesli bars are one of the many snacks that fool most people into believing they are a healthy option; they’re sneaky little things!
Their big selling point is their convenience, and also the ridiculously high amount of sugar packed into each one. Most people see them as the perfect snack to satisfy the mid morning hunger or the mid afternoon energy slump; but the truth is, they are not providing any nutritional value whatsoever. They’ll pick you up for a moment, just to tear you down shortly after gobbling them down.
I created this recipe to do the exact opposite, while still being super convenient and, of course, yummm!
As a uni student, I find these muesli bars are perfect to take as a snack. They are filled with fibre, healthy fats, protein and an array of different vitamins and nutrients. They’re perfect as a quick bite between classes, or even just as a treat at home.
So, the next time you’re tempted into buying a box of those conveniently packed Uncle Toby’s bars, think again and opt for buying the ingredients for these delicious little morsels instead.
