Quinoa & Blueberry Breakfast Bars
These Quinoa & Blueberry Breakfast Bars are perfect if you’re looking for a delicious, nutritious breakfast throughout the week when perhaps you don’t have time to make a bowl of porridge or homemade smoothie. These bars are a great source of protein and fibre thanks to the quinoa and seed mix (chia, pumpkin and sunflower) which will keep your fuelled all morning, aid digestion and keep your blood sugar levels steady. Quinoa is also packed full of iron, magnesium, copper and B6!
