Because I usually only have a smoothie for breakfast, I’m usually hungry again by about 11am which is too early for lunch but near enough lunchtime to not want anything too substantial. 9bar have just launched their range of breakfast bars which are ideal for that hungry-but-it’s-too-early-for lunch dilemma.
They come in four flavours: Apricot & Strawberry, Cashew & Cocoa, Almond & Raspberry, and Peanut & Raisin. 9bar sent me all four flavours to try and although they’re all tasty and I’d be happy to eat any of them again, my favourite is the Cashew & Cocoa variety.
As they’re full of seeds, bits will get stuck in your teeth, so my advice is not to eat one around someone who doesn’t like the sound of teeth being unstuck of seeds (yes, I’m talking from experience here).
The 9bar Breakfast range is gluten-free, suitable for vegetarians and vegans andwill be in independent health food stores nationwide from May or online at www.9bar.com. All varieties are available in 50g singles, RRP 90p per bar. Visit www.9bar.com for more information.
