Cameron, my husband has been training for his bronze medallion, which is a surf lifesaving practical course which enables you to volunteer as a surf lifesaver here in Queensland. It is very intensive, he has been spending 4 hours training on a Saturday morning, in the surf and on the sand in the scorching heat. Before he leaves in the morning, he has been eating a banana and a healthy variety of muesli bar. Today I thought that I would make an energy packed treat that would be perfect for him to eat before and during his training.
These little bites are super tasty and could also be great for breakfast on the go or as a snack during the day whether you are training or not. They are really easy to make being no bake, they are also gluten, diary and sugar-free and packed with super foods.
