buy Lyrica in mexico Packed with Beetroot, Berries, Nuts, Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds, one bar will give you a full on Omega, Iron and Vitamin C blast to power you through the day!

I spent last Saturday in Newcastle for the day brunching and shopping. While shopping I went through the local market. So many fresh fruits and vegetables that I couldn’t resist buying! There is definitely something more satisfying about buying your fruit and veg from a local market. I ended up getting a load of beetroot and when I got back I was trying to think up a recipe I could use them in. I love beetroot in brownies (Protein Beetroot Brownies) but decided to try something different which is where these bars come in.

In the recipe i use a mixture of nuts and seeds which you can chop and change for whatever you have in your cupboard. I used an Omega mix for the topping which is a mixture of 5 seeds with a rich, nutty flavour packed with vitamins and minerals. You can however simply make your own mix.

Each slice is only 115 calories and contains 6g Protein, making a perfect healthy energy boosting snack!

  • 25g Walnuts (could use any other nuts)
  • TOP LAYER:

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / Gas Mark 4.

  3. Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with greaseproof paper or baking parchment, and spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the tin.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes, then remove from the oven and set aside.
  5. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the top layer, then spread them evenly over the bottom layer.
  6. Return them to the oven for a further 12-15 minutes until starting to turn golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave in the tin to cool.
  8. Then slice into individual bites or bars and enjoy!
