Filled with autumnal flavours, these little flapjacks work as a nutritious mid morning energy boost. It sounds pretty obvious, however research suggests when on the hunt for a snack, you're more likely to go for something that is in your eye line.
So, if you're working from home and the biscuit jar* has become your best friend (me included), making some of these flapjacks at the start of the week and storing them at the front of the fridge could be a great way to welcome a more nutrient dense snack which has the potential to keep you feeling full until your next meal. See recipe below.
2tbsp Honey/ Maple Syrup
1tbsp Nut Butter
1tbsp Coconut Oil
Dash of Milk (of choice)
Dried Fruit of choice (sultanas work well)
1tbsp Pumpkin Seeds
1tbsp Desiccated Coconut (optional)
2tsp Ground Cinnamon
2tsp Ground Ginger
3 Apples (2 for topping, 1 inside)
For Baked Apples:
1tsp Honey/ Maple Syrup
1tsp Coconut oil
1tsp Ground Cinnamon
Finely slice 2 of the apples. Spread over a baking tray, lightly coat in coconut oil, honey and cinnamon and bake for 5 – 10 minutes until partially soft.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan and add the honey. Mix well then remove from the heat.
Weigh out the oats and pour into a large bowl. Add the sultanas, nut butter, melted coconut/honey mixture and the cinnamon. Stir well.
Grate the remaining apple and mix in. Add the desiccated coconut and pumpkin seeds. Once the mixture is evenly combined, pour onto a greased baking tray and top with the spiced apples. Bake in the oven on 180c for 15 – 20 minutes until firm and cooked through.
Leave to cool then slice into portions.
Enjoy straight away or store in an airtight container for snacking throughout the week. Enjoy!
*P.S. A biscuit every now and again is still a yes from me!*
