Whether you’re leaving the house or not, breakfast can sometimes be easily overlooked.
Not everyone has the luxury of sitting down for a freshly cooked plate of eggs or bowl of baked oats every morning, we totally get that. Some days it’s hard to even get a cup of coffee in between the calls, meetings, and emails — especially if you still have a commute to factor in as well.
That’s why these delicious grab-n-go breakfast bars from Niall Kirkland are a game-changer. Simply make up a batch on Sunday night (or whenever you have a spare hour in the week) and you’ll be set with 16 fruity raspberry and oat treats to keep you fuelled the whole week through.
Made with natural ingredients, they provide a healthy dose of carbs so that you have the energy to start your day right and face that to-do list. They’re also great to have around for a midday pick-me-up or pre-workout boost. Sorted.
