A healthy snack to keep you on track
30th Dec, 2013

Ingredients

  • 100g honey
  • 100g oats
  • 100g pistachios roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp flaxseeds
  • 1 tsp psylium husk (don't worry if you don't have this, just use extra flaxseeds)
  • 50g dried dates roughly chopped
  • 20g golden raisins

Equipment required:

  • Large bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Baking tray
  • Greaseproof paper
  • Knife

The key to sticking to a healthy eating plan is to always have a tasty, healthy little snack on you at all times. This is one of my favorite treats as its not too sweet but still satisfies those sugar cravings. The oats are also great for slowly releasing energy and keeping your feeling fuller for longer.

Preheat your oven to 170°c/gas 4. Lined a 20 cm baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl. Place the mixture on the baking tray and flatten with a wooden spoon. Cover the mixture with some baking paper and place another baking tray on top, then gently push down to completely flatten the mixture. Don't apply too much pressure or the bars will come out too hard. Remove the extra baking tray and baking paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Now slice them into 12 small bars and serve. These will keep in an airtight jar for 10 days.

This home-made pesto recipe is also super easy to blitz together, the combination of aniseed tarragon and earthy basil create a vibrant and refreshing flavour. The whole dish offers an excellent combination of protein and fiber.
