More often than not, my elder daughter skips breakfast as she leaves for school at 7:15 AM. Whenever she does so, I feel very regretful that I did not force her to eat. I know it is an upsetting situation for many parents, therefore to solve this problem I decided to make this speedy form of breakfast.

This is also an incredibly travel-friendly grab & go snack,whether it is on a plane or as simple as a short car, journey. This is a Vegan, Gluten free, Whole Food Plant based, Protein Rich, Kid friendly breakfast / snack for school or after school-time. Oh, mentioning this, have you seen my collection of after-school snacks?

My statement: “Involve your kids in cooking and see, how healthy their lifestyle will be in their future”. 

For, they will be aware of the ingredients & effort put in. Start with this simple recipe to be joy-filled by your children’s merry, proud faces. The happy part is that it only has three ingredients and a baked one, so there is no need to babysit the stove! 🙂

Once I chopped the almonds, I was driven away by an young persistent chef (my younger daughter) who insisted like this…. “Amma (Mum), I will do the rest of the recipe, without any help….. you can tell me the instructions.”

So, I left her to finish the task, and as you see by the result below, she made them excellently.  More than the bars, her accomplished smile was of more worth. 🙂 🙂 And, she will always be longing for these bars from now on. I will have to keep baking a constant supply! 😉

Tips:

  • You can use honey instead of Maple Syrup / Golden Syrup.
  • If you are making these for toddlers, cut each almond into 5-6 pieces so that its easy for them to bite.
  • Make sure that the baked pan, dries fully or else the bars might break.
  • Before storing, wrap each bar with a fresh parchment paper so they don’t stick to each other.
  • Store them in an air-tight container, so that they don’t turn hard in open air.
  • Don’t store in fridge, but in the pantry shelf would do.

Result:

  • These, Vegan Almond Energy Bars, were really good to taste and are handy enough as a ‘grab & go’ snack / breakfast.
  • The syrup completely overlapped the other 2 ingredients, and makes the bars chewy in every bite.
