Power Muesli Chocolate Bar Recipe

Oats are packed with heart-healthy dietary fibre and nutrients such as B vitamins, vitamin E and iron. Oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which has been scientifically proven to lower total cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats also provide slow-release complex carbohydrates to fuel your brain and body. Nuts, seeds and eggs are excellent sources of protein, supplying our bodies with important amino acids required for repair and growth. Having a protein- and fibre-rich snack like this will help keep you satisfied until your next meal, and will help to curb unwanted sugar cravings.
