Apple and Raisin Oaty Bars

Apple and Raisin Oaty Bars
On a week day my alarm goes off at 5:45am - I don't mind, I'm an early bird. Hubby and I get up and dressed then I bundle the kids, still in their PJ's, into the car and drop them at my parents house on my way to work. I try and get into the office for 7:30am but due to tractors, caravans, lorries and pot holes its usually closer to 8am. As you can probably appreciate by the time I get there I'm absolutely STARVING hungry having had no time for breakfast beforehand.

In order to stop me snacking on naughty office treats (of which there are always many!) I tend to take oat based cereal bars to keep the hunger pangs at bay until lunchtime.

These apple and raisin oaty bars are perfect for filling my tummy with something relatively healthy and nutritious. Lovely and moist, thanks to the diced apple and soft squidgy raisins and great for kids lunchboxes too. If you wanted you could substitute the apple for more dried fruit like apricots or figs, or even add some seeds - pumpkin, sunflower.... the possibilities are endless.

Who else is forced into grab and go breakfasts in the mornings? What do you have? I tend to make my cereal bars on a Sunday ready for the week ahead. Sometimes I make a double batch and freeze half.
