12. Store in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days.

Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Bars

Pumpkin spice is blood-sugar balancing, soothing on the digestive system and a great natural sweetener. These bars are packed with good fats, antioxidants, and protein to keep you glowing all morning! If you don’t have pumpkin spice you can use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

For the Turmeric drizzle:

• 2 tbsp tahini, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp maple syrup

Method:

1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well combined – the mixture should be firm but soft.

2. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tray and press the mixture in evenly with the back of a spoon.

3. Combine the ingredients for the turmeric drizzle and stir until smooth and combined. Drizzle over mixture.
