Fruit & Nut Oat Bars


Fruit & Nut Oat Bars

We all know Breakfast is the most important meal of the day...eat like a king and all that (I tend to eat like a king for lunch and dinner too, mind you 😋). You've also got to do your best to keep those horrible mid morning hunger pangs at bay and to stop the sneaky 11am biscuit tin raid!

I make a batch of these grab and go Fruit and Nut Porridge Oat Bars very regularly for mornings when time is too short to sit down for breakfast - and during term time that's quite often in this house. I'm sharing the recipe with you today to celebrate the Wake Up To Organic campaign, this year on the 14th June 2017. Independent shops and cafe's across the country will be serving up free organic mini breakfasts to showcase the delicious range of organic food and drink they have on offer, demonstrating how simple it is to make the switch to organic and how important eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast is. To find your local place to grab a free organic breakie on the 14th June take a look at the Wake Up To Organic website - you can also share your favourite organic breakfast using the #WakeUpToOrganic hashtag.

The UK's appetite for organic food is growing, as people become more aware of the benefits to the environment and knowing what's in their food. Wake Up To Organic hopes to encourage more people to try organic, with breakfast being a great place to start.

REASONS TO TRY ORGANIC:

  • Good for you - natural, tasty, fewer pesticides.
  • Good for animals - high standards of animal welfare with no routine use of antibiotics.
  • Good for the planet - high environmental standards, promoting and supporting up to 50% more wildlife.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THESE FRUIT AND NUT PORRIDGE OAT BARS:

  • You can vary the dried fruit and nuts in the oat bars to whatever you fancy. I used dried apricots, raisins, dried cranberries, chopped pecans and some pumpkin seeds. As long as the weight adds up to 340g it will work.
  • These bars are also great for quick after school snacks or for popping into the kids lunchboxes.
  • If you don't like almond butter use 150g butter instead.
