Description

These delicious and extremely moreish (think addictive) bars are an energy packed version of a brownie, with the addition of ground almonds, dried apricots and Black Badger Peas.

Super easy to make as they are made with a tin of our Black Badger Carlin Peas, great if you don’t happen to have any cooked peas to hand, you can just grab a can out of the store cupboard.

They make a perfect addition to lunch boxes or picnics and are loved by adults and children alike.
