Lunch-box friendly, low carb, paleo, vegan bars of yum!

Muesli Bars

by Helen Marshall

Conventional Muesli Bars are so convenient but, let’s face it, they don’t offer much nutrition at all.  Most Muesli Bars are full of gluten, wheat, dairy and sugar.  A lot of paleo/primal treats are packed with nuts, which is problematic when you’re trying to find something quick and nourishing to pop in lunch boxes.

I love this Granola as you only need 3 ingredients, so it’s totally faff-free so you’ll always feel like whipping one up!  I can see this being a staple in our fridge – what about you?

I made mine with honey and the taste reminded me of Flapjack that my Mam makes.  The original Flapjack recipe is made with so much sugar and oats so we don’t make it anymore…but now we have this primal alternative woohoo!

Lunchboxes are close to my heart!  You can do a lot of great work with solid ‘book end’ meals like Breakfast and Dinner but I do despair at the content of lunchboxes – even my own kids.  I am hoping this bar – packed full of fat and protein will be a healthy new addition.

I’d love to see what you make!  Be sure to tag me in on social media #primalalternative or @primalalternative
