Chocolate museli

This chocolate museli is vegan, nut free and can be easily made gluten free. It’s full of protein with chia and flax seeds, pepitas and oats ensuring you stay full. I love eating this as a breakfast, snack, dessert, or after a work out for a boost of protein.

Museli bars can be full of hidden sugars and artificial ingredients. This museli is so simple and lasts a week in a cool dry place. Bring it to work, school or serve to guests.
