  1. Mix the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, then pour in the vanilla essence, maple syrup and milk and stir well. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients and gradually stir them in, followed by the nuts. The mixture should be thick but pourable. Allow it to rest for about 15 minutes.
  3. Melt half the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Drop blobs of the mixture into the pan, using 1-2 tablespoonfuls for each pancake. Repeat, leaving space around each one, and cook them for 2-3 minutes until they’re golden brown and holes appear on the surface.
  4. Flip them over carefully with a spatula and cook them for 1-2 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  5. They taste great served with 1 tbsp Greek-style yoghurt (add 75 cals), 1 tsp honey (add 20 cals) and some berries or half a sliced banana (add 50 cals).

Cranberry Apple and Oatmeal Snack Balls

 

80 g (23/4 oz/¹⁄³ cup) unsalted raw cashews, preferably soaked for 2 hours beforehand, then rinsed and drained

70 g (2½ oz/²⁄³ cup) rolled (porridge) oats (see note on page 104)

55 g (2 oz/¹⁄³ cup) dried cranberries

50 g (13/4 oz/½ cup) preservative-free dried apple

4 soft medjool dates, pitted

60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) coconut oil, melted and cooled

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

Put all the ingredients in a food processor, and whiz until the mixture gets clumpy. Empty into a bowl, and shape into golf-sized balls using your hands. Store in an airtight container in a cool place or the refrigerator (although they’ll be quite firm if kept this way).

For little ones: Try shaping into fingers for easier gripping.

 

** Very suitable to put in your work lunch box as a snack –  they were easy to make and yummy – sorry no pictures  they were devoured before the camera came out 🙂

 

 

 

Brekkie On The Go- Dude Food – Dan Churchill

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite breakfasts.   I made this with steel cut oats, fresh and frozen berries, Greek yoghurt, agave and walnuts ( almonds would work too). You can add protein powder too if so inclined. YUM. Presenting in a jar or cup is very trendy at the moment and if you have a screw top jar this is perfect to take to work – for breakfast or lunch.
