I know, it is a Saturday and there is a blog post but a few people asked for this recipe so I am sharing. Sharing is caring remember. I gave up chocolate for lent. I have gone from eating at least a bar a day (and more over a weekend) to nothing and I miss it. Mainly because in October I gave up caffeine (I know right) and at about 2/3pm my body starts to slump, I would usually fill my face with chocolate for a quick sugar rush before dinner so I needed to find something else. I thought about making flapjacks, but they contain so much butter and sugar that it was really just the same as having a chocolate bar so I put together this happy medley. They keep my tummy happy for hours, give me a sweet quick, stay moist all week AND taste delicious. I make these on a Sunday night ready for Michael and I to have during the week, he takes his in a little lunchbox. Adorable.
3tbsp crunchy yummy healthy peanut butter
2tbsp honey 1 apple peeled and grated
2 ripe bananas, mashed within a hell of their lives
250g rolled oats
50g dried apricots, cut in to chunks
110g raisins or sultanas, or those mixed berry bag things
80g nuts/seeds whatever you like the taste of
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, dried fruit and nuts then pour in the hot, wet mixture and combine. Decant in to the tin and bake in the oven for 45-50 mins or until it looks a little golden on top. Enjoy! Tweet/instagram me a pic if you make them, and let me know what combination you use! Could easily add chai seeds, protein, maple syrup and chocolate chips! Oooph.
