Eggless Oats Coconut Fruit & Nuts Bar
I always love experimenting in the kitchen, I have never found a good granola bar in all honesty. All the store bought ones are either sweet, sticky or have ingredients that I don't fancy. So what do I do? tried my hands in making healthy homemade granola bars. Crunchy on the outside and moist and soft on the inside, a perfect way to cure the sweet tooth and enjoy a light bite. Pack these as a snack for your kids and family they will enjoy those sweet moments of break and thank me later ;-). Since Christmas is coming why not make these for your friends and family, since its egg free vegetarians would love them too. Also you can make them vegan by skipping the butter and adding some vegan butter or coconut oil. 

Here's a list of readers favorite Christmas recipes from last year ;-) a blast from the past!
