Very Berry Breakfast Bars

Get your food prep game on with these fabulously fruity breakfast treats. Prepare the night before and have one less thing to worry about on a stressful morning of homeschooling.

We’ve teamed up with plant-based food blogger, Amy Lanza, to share our recipe for these Very Berry Breakfast Bars – an on-the-go pick me up for key workers or a sweet way to cut through another grey day indoors. 

Inspired by the superberries and vitamin c in our Glow Berry serum, they provide a soft oaty texture with a sharp layer of berry jam and the piece de resistance – a crunchy, nutty coat on top.
