Lactation Flapjacks

image

These flapjacks make a fantastic snack, are great for lunch boxes and go brilliantly with a cup of tea. They are full of fibre and plant protein and are refined sugar-free and also gluten-free. If you are breast-feeding you will want a batch of these to hand as they make great snacks to help with lactation and are a good pick-me-up when energy is dwindling. I make various versions of these flapjacks depending on what I have in the cupboards. I sometimes make them with nuts and seeds too. They are chewy and delicious.

Ingredients

3 mugs of oats
3 mashed bananas
5 tablespoons of cashew nut butter (I use Meridian or Pip & Nut or you can easily make your own)
4 tablespoons maple syrup
4 tablespoons coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
2 tablespoons of raisins

Preheat the oven to 200Β°C (fan 180Β°C).

Mash the bananas with a fork and add them to a saucepan with the maple syrup, nut butter and coconut oil. Allow ingredients to simmer gently on the hob  until it liquidises.

Pour the oats and raisins into the mixture and stir well so that they are all covered.

Grease a baking tray with some coconut oil. Transfer the mixture into the baking tray, press down firmly with the back of a spoon or spatula so that it’s tightly compact.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until you see the top slightly browning.

Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing the flapjacks up. Enjoy with a cup of tea and your feet up!

Hello, welcome to my blog - naturallea! I started this blog as after having my beautiful baby girl I found that I was totally zapped of energy, I literally didn't know how I'd make it through the day. On little or no sleep I found myself addicted to sugar and caffeine. I decided to completely transform my diet to see if it had any affect. I want to share my health journey with you. I am by no means a nutritionist, athlete or doctor but I am passionate about health, food and spiritual well being. So I'm sharing this blog with you and if my shoddy photography can inspire you to make even one simple change towards a healthier lifestyle - it will make me happy ; ) Enjoy the recipes Lea xx
