These frozen Blueberry Breakfast Bars are low in carbs, full of healthy fats, minerals and vitamins. They are gluten free and contain no grains, dairy, soy and refined sugars.
The best way to describe them is by imagining a fruit smoothie topped with granola but in the form of bars that you can take on the road with you, when you need a quick breakfast.
