Happy New Year Everyone! Sadly January seems to be associated with healthy eating. After a month of inhaling chocolate and everything else I could get my hands on, I felt it was time to join in and at least snack better. I love cereal bars and find them an easy thing to eat in the morning, but I was tired of buying ones filled with sugar and who knows what else. So I found this recipe which had yummy ingredients such as coconut, apricot and peanut butter. I added more types of seeds and halved the amount of sugar as I felt it didn’t need it, what with the syrup and vanilla. They are delicious. I wrapped them with baking paper and string so they can be taken to work or put in a handbag.

After a long and stressful week I felt like I deserved these. I’ve been wanting them for a few days now after watching a Friends episode that mentioned oatmeal cookies…I used this recipe but just used chocolate chips instead of nuts. They are just the right amount chewy and are perfect with a cup of tea or glass of milk. A good way to start a relaxing weekend.
