Chocolate Blueberry Bars
These Gluten-free and vegan chocolate bars are perfect for dessert or in place of a protein/cereal bar. High in fiber and filled with whole-grains, eating these for breakfast help stabilize blood sugar levels and keep you from that mid-morning energy crash! I enjoyed mine with a cup of warm lemon tea this morning and had high energy for a solid 4-5 hours!
For nut allergies, swap out the cashews in the blueberry layer for Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats. Delicious. Enjoy!!!
