We love our first meal of the day, even more so now when it includes Holy Joe. However, often we don’t eat until mid to late morning to intermittent fast, and sometimes we are nowhere near home when we are ready to eat. So we got our homemade granola and blended it with some dates, vanilla & tahini then topped it with Holy Joe infused raw chocolate, to give us our breakfast in a bar. These are nutrient-dense and you can play around with the nuts & dried fruit you add to create your own masterpiece.
