#WakeUpToOrganic 2018 Muesli breakfast bar recipe


All over the UK today just under 300 independent retailers, cafes, farm shops dished up free organic mini-breakfasts to customers in celebration of all things organic. The campaign is all about supporting indie retailers and showing the great brands and products that they sell. Check out some of the stories from around the country here.

I made these muesli bars with Alara Muesli for Timber! in Ringwood and Gulliver’s Farm Shop in West Moors.

The muesli bar recipe has no added sugar, with all the sugar coming from dried fruit and bananas, and it’s also vegan.
