Granola Breakfast Bars

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

We love our first meal of the day, even more so now when we add a cold drip coffee brew to the menu. However, often we don’t eat until mid to late morning so we get a 14 hour fast between meals, and sometimes we are nowhere near home when we are ready to eat. So we got our homemade granola and blended it with some dates, vanilla & tahini then topped it with Holy Joe infused raw chocolate, to give us our breakfast in a bar. These are nutrient dense and you can play around with the nuts & dried fruit you add to create your own masterpiece.
