Luxury Lunchboxes: Cherry Cacao Quinoa Bars with Indigo Herbs

Luxury Lunchboxes: Cherry Cacao Quinoa Bars with Indigo Herbs

Is it just me or do work lunches get really boring? During the holidays I have loads of time but when I am at work, I just seem to get stuck in a rut of the packing the same old things OR worse just don’t bother taking any at all.  And as for breakfast… its usually a coffee in my trusty travel mug, hastily drunk cold the other end of my m27 communte!

So when Indigo Herbs sent me a load of lovely ingredients I knew exactly what to make!  I give you my quick & easy Cherry Cacao Quinoa Bars, glutenfree, vegan and with a generous drizzle of melted chocolate and scattering of crunchy cocoa nibs. Perfect for a grab & go breakfast or for making lunchboxes a little bit more exciting.  These were also very nice mid-afternoon with a cup of coffee!

These Healthy Chocolate & Tahini Cookie Dough Balls are soft, chewy and full of crunchy nuts & seeds. They make a great vegan protein packed nutritious post swim snack! They are really cute and because the mixture doesn’t spread they keep their little dumpling shape, they were named Cookie Dumplings by the Peachicks.  They are dairyfree, eggfree and glutenfree (contain oats) and are brilliant for lunchboxes and after gym snacks.  They are packed with nutrients, although I would recommend leaving the nuts out for school lunchboxes as a lot of schools have no nuts policies.  These would also be AMAZING with small apple chunks in it!
