WIAW – I’ll bring the Goji Berry & Choc Chip Granola Bars & Recipe!

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far! ūüôā

It’s Wednesday again, which can only mean one thing in foodie blogging world…. it’s WIAW party time!!!¬† Big thank you to Jenn over at¬†Peas and Crayons¬†for being such a great hostess and all round¬†star! ūüôā

For this week’s party, I’m going to share our eats from yesterday (Tuesday).¬† Here goes…

– Hot lemon and water
– A delicious bowl of warm porridge made with Alpro Soya Milk.¬† M and I had Mornflake Superfast Oats (which only take 2 minutes to cook!), and¬†Lil’ L had Ready Brek.

We topped our porridge with chopped Brazils, pecans, walnuts, flaked almonds, ground flaxseed and goji berries, and a drizzle of Sweet Freedom Fruit Sweetener.

We all had different lunches today. 
– Lil’ L had first choice of the leftovers from the weekend and¬†took the giant veggie pastie.¬†No surprise there!
– M had pittas filled with falafel, humous and romaine lettuce.
– I chose to make¬†romaine lettuce leaf¬†wraps,¬†filled with sun-dried tomato humous, sun-dried tomatoes and black olives.¬† I also had a couple of Nairn’s sweet red pepper oatcakes.

Yesterday, for what seems like the first time in weeks, it actually stopped raining and the sun came out!  I grabbed the opportunity to eat a quick lunch in the garden. It was so nice! 

With all this rain, the garden’s looking a bit like a jungle, but there’s lots of pretty flowers that are popping up amongst the weeds.


We’re back to rain again today, so¬†who knows when I’ll get a¬†chance to sit out in the garden¬†again!

Drinks & Snacks
nettle tea, 1 black coffee, water
no snacks today (wasn’t hungry!)

For dinner, I¬† made another of our favourite family meals… vegetable¬†crumble.¬† I used oats, nuts,¬†seeds, yeast flakes and mustard powder in the crumble topping, which made¬†it really tasty and crunchy.¬†

I promise to post the recipe very soon!

A strawberry & banana smoothie made with fresh organic strawberries, 1 banana, Kara Coconut Milk, 2 tbsp Alpro Soya Yoghurt, chia seeds (for an omega 3 boost) and a dash of Sweet Freedom sweetener. 

Plus a goji berry & choc chip granola bar

Each week, I make a couple of trays of granola bars for lunch boxes and my Tuesday night study class.¬† They’re so quick to make and I find them much easier to bake than cakes and muffins!

I use agave syrup as the sweetener¬†to make them low GI, and I use only a small amount of oil, so they’re¬†much lower in calories than your usual flapjack/ granola bars.

¬†Here’s the recipe:

Time to head over to Jenn’s and check out all the¬†gorgeous eats ūüôā

Happy Wednesday everyone!  xx

  1. those bars sound so delicious- i used to make “tropical energy balls” with gojis, coconut and cashews but its been a while so this recipe comes just in time! i actually just bought a huge bag of gojis too ūüôā love your photos and all the beautiful nature in it! one day we’ve go to have lunch together in your beautiful garden ūüėČ

  2. I printed that granola bar recipe as soon as I read it and will be making them this weekend, and now I am anxiously awaiting the veggie crumble recipe. ūüôā What a great idea!
    I wish you a wonderful (and hopefully sunny!) weekend, and a very Happy Mother’s Day (do you celebrate it in England?).

  3. Those flowers are beautiful ūüôā

    The vegetable crumble looks and sounds delicious, I’d be keen for the recipe as I’ve never had a savoury crumble before.

    Your granola bars look fantastic!

  4. Beautiful garden and those granola bars look amazing! Thank you for sharing and so happy I found your blog!
