Homemade is the way to go as it is natural and healthy compared to the brands on the market which often contain up to 50% dried fruit and are very high in calories. They are cleverly marketed to make you think that they are healthy for you so be careful not to be misguided as they are often laden with high amounts of sugar, honey, syrup or other sweeteners.
This tasty recipe is a lovely mixture of flaked grains, nuts and seeds that are high in fibre, antioxidants and are an excellent source of B vitamins which support your metabolism and help convert food into energy. It can aid weight loss as the high fibre content keeps you fuller for longer. This nutrient dense recipe is really delicious and so easy to make.
