Ellen’s Nutty Power Bars

Peanut butter is great source of protein, which helps growth and cell repair. It also contains fibre, leaving you feeling fuller for longer. This with oats, almonds and sesame seeds make an amazingly healthy and delicious snack to keep you going until lunch. These bars also make great power boost before or after sport.

Beware of nut allergies. So these might not be the best for school lunches.

To add a sweet touch, melt 50g of dark chocolate and drizzle over the top of the bars. Place in the fridge for about two hours to set and harden.

You can also double the recipe and freeze half of the bars for up to a month. Just slice into bars first and place in an air-tight container in the freezer.
