This Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice is a game changer for me. Are you like me? A part time working Mum who needs military precision, a Mum voice that scares the neighbours into putting on their shoes and brushing their teeth and the organisational skills of Martha Stewart to get your family out of the house so you can get to work on time?
Actually, even on the days where I do not have to go to work I still have to do the above to get Mr 6 to school on time. But I digress. I find from the moment I wake up to the moment I lock the door behind us it is action stations. Kid’s tantrums, lost shoes, breakfasts being eaten. That is, breakfast for everyone but me. Try as I might on days where I have to work I just cannot find the time to eat my breakfast. More often than not I am chowing down on a piece of peanut butter toast on the train.
But I feel like I really could be doing better in the breakfast stakes. So I decided to make what is effectively portable porridge. And I am so glad I did. Enter the Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice. The answer to my (stomach’s) prayers. So wholesome and delicious. Lightly fragranced with lemon, this mouthwatering breakfast oat slice is a great grab and go breakfast.
Not only is it good for breaky, this Apple & Raspberry Breakfast Oat Slice is also great in the lunchboxes or for snacks. It is full of goodness from the oats, wholemeal flour and apple. It is also relatively low in sugar with only 1/3 cup of honey. If you wanted to make this baby led weaning friendly you could substitute the honey for maple syrup.
