My biggest struggle with circuit breaker is definitely having to constantly be on top of it all with the breakfast situation at home, I wake up much earlier then the boys and usually spend – at the very least 1/2 hr whipping up everyone’s hot drinks, juices and breakfast meal before I get time for myself to plan out my day, sort HBL, before jumping into morning meetings.
So with everyone staying home and knowing that breakfast is definitely a must have. I have created these convenient protein packed honey granola bars which you can make in advance and take out whenever you need a breakfast treat or even a noon time nibble. These are extremely tasty, packed with lots of dried fruits and nuts, so you get a wonderful combination of sticky chewiness and crunch. They are addictive, I have to warn you. Additionally, they are not difficult to make! So if you do make some, tag me at @athomewithsimone on Instagram, I would love to see your creative creations!
You can jazz up your own bars with variety of fruits and nuts, and if you’re looking to purchase online, do try Phoon Huat on S-Mart, Shoppee. Links below.
