These bars are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, with added collagen protein for hair, skin, nail, and joint health. They make your house smell amazing while baking, and they’re a perfect make-ahead breakfast option.
Try boosting them with any add-ins you like – spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom), ground flaxseed, brain octane/MCT oil, collagen, maca, etc.
Give them a try! They only take about 30 minutes from start to finish, including baking time!
