Amaranth Muesli Bars

These bars a a great snack when you are on the go. Its perfect when you travel and you can wrap them into individual bags or keep them in larger airtight containers for the whole family to share. Just remember, they will get sticky and crumble more if you keep them hot for too long, so make you you store them in a cool environment whenever possible.

Amaranth is a great superfood, filled with fibers, minerals and much more of the good stuff. The combination with cocoa, dried fruits and nuts make the bars filling and very tasty and will keep those little tummies from growling when you are on the road!
