After rebelling against a recipe (I do that a lot) I accidentally invented a delicious snack! As well as being high in fibre and low in sugar, these oaty bites also pack an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory punch. Ginger & Turmeric are both loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Happy baking!
2 cups of GF oats
1 apple – grated
1 carrot – grated
1 banana – mashed
1tsp of mixed spice or cinnamon
Grated or fresh ginger
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 scoop vanilla protein powder – I use Nuzest
Optional: 1 tbsp nut butter
Topping: Walnuts or Mixed Seeds
Method: Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Pre-heat the oven to 180. Roll the mixture into bite sized balls and place on a baking tray with parchment. Bake until golden brown. Add toppings whilst still warm so they stick – ENJOY!
