A Slimming World Breakfast Choice

These Healthy No Bake Cranberry & Chocolate Breakfast Bars are a healthy and super nutritious choice in their own right, but they’re also ideal if you’re following Slimming World.

Each bar counts as half of your Healthy Extra B choice for the day plus 2.5 syns. This means you could have up to two per day and use just five syns in total, in the knowledge that you’re enjoying something that has real nutritional value from the oats, banana, cranberries and even the chocolate!

All of the ingredients used, give something different nutritionally, as well as packing in the taste sensation! If sweet cravings are something you struggle with on Slimming World then making these breakfast bars is a great choice, as both the chocolate and cranberries will help to curb those urges.

Not only that, but oats are so full of fibre, making these super filling. I like to have one for breakfast and then another at around 10/11am when I take a break from work. But whether you stick to one, or enjoy two together or throughout the day, they’re certain to fill you up!

Breakfast Bars That Are Gluten Free & Naturally Sweet

If you’re on the hunt for a gluten free, meal prep breakfast choice then these breakfast bars are an excellent choice. Simply double check that the oats you’re buying are marked as gluten free and you’re good to go!

When it comes to sweetness, these are also a brilliant way to start the day. Whilst the chocolate might not be strictly speaking classed as ‘naturally sweet’, dark chocolate has a whole host of health benefits and the rest of the ingredients in these bars give you all of the natural sweetness you’re looking for.

These breakfast bars are also dairy free if you use a dairy free chocolate!

    Honestly, I don't like oatmeal for breakfast regularly. This is a very easy and incredibly delicious recipe solution that you have provided for everyday healthy breakfast woes. I am definitely going to try this and get them ready in a batch. They can even serve for the sudden hunger pangs.
