Energy bars with nuts and seeds

I have been ‘silent’ for a month and I apologise! But I’m back with a bang! So, what a way to start your week, if not with lots of energy! We are what we eat and what we eat either fuels us for the best or worse. 

So, a few of my favourites in this recipe: chia seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, almond butter, pistachios and oats! I hope you enjoy these, i know your body will thank you.
