Grain Free Breakfast Granola Bars

These Grain Free Breakfast Granola Bars can, of course, be enjoyed at any time of day, but I particularly like to have them around when I get up too late and have to rush to work.

Generally, I will always try to prepare a proper breakfast if the time allows it.

My body just doesn’t seem to be functioning right without some brain food in the morning.
Some people like extensive breakfasts, others can’t get a bite down and rely on coffee instead.

Usually, I will sit down and enjoy a bowl of my homemade yoghurt, topped with some seeds and berries.

Twice a day I give my gut health a little treat by drinking a cup of my homemade kefir.

At the beginning, it took a bit to get used to the quite unusual flavour, but after experimenting with some seriously delicious flavours, I would not want to miss it anymore.

Whenever I don’t find the time to sit down to enjoy an extensive breakfast, I grab one of these bars and off I go.
