I love snack bars – especially healthy ones! They can be a perfect pick-me-up between meals and make a delicious dessert idea as well. These Weetabix snack bars are an ideal lunch box addition and contain just 125 Kcal each. They also bursting with vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and fibre from the fruit and wholegrain cereal, and contain healthy monounsaturated fatty acids as a bonus.  These snack bars are super quick and easy to make and can be adapted to contain different dried fruits depending on your preferences.

P.S the video above isn’t a ‘how to make’ video but is around how to choose a healthy snack bar and I mention this recipe at the end!

    I love these bars, I’m training for the London Marathon 2014 and as a student it’s great to have a healthy and cheaper alternative to shop-bought recovery snacks. Could you please try to make more post-exerciae recipes with protein powder alternatives as once again it’s slightly beyond my budget. But thanks for all the lovely recipes

      Hi Leigh! Thanks for your comment. My Maxitone protein bars could be good for after a work out – and you could try swapping the protein powder for skimmed milk powder. Try my banana and peanut butter smoothie post work-out too! Feel free to send me a picture of your bars – I’d love to see them! Thank you! Nic x
