Oats, Cranberries & Almond Hayfever Bites


IMG_0748

I created this recipe because it is still rammed with protein, but all through natural sources. Whilst I have no issues adding a good, clean protein powder to food, it is nice to create a high protein snack with natural ingredients. I also have sourced and added honey from a few houses down the road - local honey can combat against hay fever, as well as giving it sweet taste. The oats are not only a good source or protein, but also great for combating constipation and stress.

The recipe is -

  • 4tbsp of almond butter
  • 3tbsp of local honey
  • 150g of ground almonds
  • 100g of oat flour - I used gluten free, but you can add another ground nut powder instead or more coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 100g of coconut flour
  • 3tbsp of dried cranberries
  • A couple of tsp of your choice of milk

1 - mix all the dry ingredients first, and then add the wet
2 - mix well until it becomes a thick dough. Now add some milk if it is too dry, and can’t be compacted. Just a little at a time, though
3 - line a small baking tray with cling film, and then press the mixture into the tray
4 - Leave to set in the fridge for 3 hours, or freeze and munch on when needed
