Power Breakfasts: honey, banana and peanut butter bars

Posted on December 5, 2012 by Dawn

When I think of a nutritious breakfast on-the-go, muesli bars are the ideal. Compact, tasty and substantial enough to keep you filled until lunch, I keep a container of these in the fridge at all times, for a quick bite in the car when we are strapped for time in the mornings. My son loves them as an afternoon snack when he comes home from school, and because these bars are so moist, soft and chewy, I also give small bits (after taking out the nuts) to my 14 month-old daughter to nibble on when she’s peckish. Some added chocolate chips will take them into dessert territory; a healthy, yet still indulgent accompaniment to a cup of tea after dinner.

These high-fibre bars are naturally sweetened with honey and over-ripe bananas, which I’m always finding ways to use up. The combination of egg, nut butter, milk, nuts and seeds makes these bars a protein-packed breakfast for our active little ones. Once you give these quick and easy muesli bars a go, I’m sure they will be a regular feature on your family’s breakfast rotation.
