  • BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS I think like all parents
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS... I think like all parents I’m constantly searching for new, delicious and nourishing treats to pop in the school (and my...) lunchbox and these BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS totally hit the spot. They’re a great source of protein with both eggs and quinoa flakes in the mix, the yummiest balance of sweet from fruits and some honey or maple, and rich in fibre and healthy fats from a mix of seeds, coconut flakes and olive oil. I’ve popped some options for ingredient swaps in the recipe if you don’t have these on hand too.
