Irish ‘Wildflax’ Granola Bars
These great quick and easy granola bars are perfect to whip up when you know you have a busy week ahead so that they are ready for those grab and go moments. With the added bonus of using our Camelina, Irish ‘Wildflax’ Oil that is high in Omega 3 and contains vitamin E, making these much better for you than the alternative shop-bought versions. Super simple to rustle up too, and can be adapted to your own tastes and what you have available to you, changing up the nut and seed mix to use up any leftovers you may have or swapping the almond butter for another nut butter in your cupboard you’ll soon be making your own version so much you could do it with your eyes closed.
