Berry & Coconut Porridge Bars

Berry & Coconut Porridge Bars 

This is such a quick and easy breakfast option and provides slow release carbs, fibre and plenty of flavour.

They are soft but hold their shape well, making them perfect for even the youngest eaters! You can really customise the flavours to suit your little ones palette. I find the cinnamon adds some natural sweetness but you could add in finely chopped dates, raisins or a dash of honey (only suitable for those over 1).
