There are two items my grandmother always had in her pantry. The one was pickled onions and the other was crunchies. I could eat the entire jar of her pickles in one setting had she let me. Wanting to replicate her crunchies but add my own twist, I came up with these blueberry and white chocolate crunchies.
Head straight on to the recipe for Blueberry And White Chocolate Crunchies ♥
In September last year I upgraded my Polar Loop to a Polar A360. It has the added benefit of measuring my gym training and has a built in heart rate monitor. I found it cheaper in England than here and asked Mark to bring it over with him when we met up in The Netherlands. He was able to buy it from the company he works for, saving me a few extra Pounds. Within six weeks the band had started stretching and I was not the only one with the issue. A friend had the same problem with hers. I decided to send Polar South Africa an email to let them know about the problem and to see what they could do. Their after sales service is excellent. Within a few hours I had a reply, asking for a copy of the receipt and the serial number of my unit.

The next morning the courier arrived at the door with a new replacement band, free of charge. There was no issue with me having purchased the product out of South Africa, and no quibbles about replacing the band. This morning I decided to swap over my old band to the new one. And I think it is a different type of plastic. Of course, I won’t really know until I have worn it for a few months. I mainly use my fitness tracker to monitor the length of my training sessions and the calories burnt. Some days are better than others and on those days, a sweet treat is just reward. In fact, for a few mornings after making these blueberry and white chocolate crunchies I even had them for breakfast.

These sound full of good things; coconut, seeds and blueberries. Bet they’re good with a nice cup of tea.
They were indeed!
These crunchies look delicious – kind of like a homemade granola bar. I like the blueberry + white chocolate combo.
One of my favourite combinations as well Amy 🙂
Tandy – I am so intrigued – I don’t think I’ve ever had a crunchy before – from the ingredient list, these sound fantastic
Thank you Shashi 🙂
Blueberry and White Chocolate sounds like a delicious combo. I bet bran flakes must have added a nice texture and taste. These Crunchies would make a nice brunch.
The bran flakes added a great texture 🙂
Your grandmother sounds like a smart woman, love everything about these crunchies, they almost remind me of paddles. Great recipe, thanks Tandy!
I will have to look up what paddles are! And yes, my gran was a very smart woman 🙂
These crunchies sound and look divine, Tandy. My family love crunchies so I am saving this recipe for future use.
Let me know how the bake turned out pelase 🙂
Ooh are these like crunchy muesli bars? They sound really good! And good after sales service should always be commended. Many are lovely before you buy an item but absent afterwards.
So true Lorraine 🙂
Pickled onions and crunchies… what a wonderful memory to have. 🙂
Cant wait to try your adaptation from your grandmas crunchie, they sound and look amazingly delicious.
Thank you Anna 🙂
Anything with white chocolate in it is a winner with me. Tese sounds right up my alley.
Hope you give them a try Fiona 🙂
i’ve never had bran flakes before (and it instead reminds me of a cartoon where a random side character mistakenly thinks that the protagonist is a box of bran flakes), but the heartiness of that seems perfect to balance out rich, creamy white chocolate (:
I don’t ever buy bran flakes unless I am making crunchies 🙂
