Nuts and honey granola bars

Nuts and Honey bar

About:

These easy-peasy granola bars make the perfect for breakfast or snack time munchies. Just adding bit of butter and honey packed with crunchy nuts and crispy flakes.

When it comes to nutrition and weight loss, many people will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is true that what you eat for breakfast will at the very least set a habitual or psychological tone for your day. Eating a healthy, low calorie breakfast can help you stay the course through the next two meals.

These bars contain moderate amounts of both, helping you fuel up for the morning without overloading on either nutrient. Both sugar and fat also add to the flavour of the bars, helping you get a quick fix of sweet taste to stave off cravings for the rest of the day.
