With lent starting I have to give up my annual choice of chocolate and biscuits these things are my worst enemy!! To avoid failing this I make batches of flapjack and energy balls to give me something to munch when I'm craving something.
I've gotten a little bored of my healthy version of flapjack so decided to try something else to snack on as well as try for breakfast ideas etc
The recipe and method of my choice was adapted from deliciously Ella without the weighing!!
A handful of pecans (or any nut u desire)
A smaller handful of almonds
Pulse these together in a blender
a handful of seed mix - pumpkin and sunflower I used
Handful of oats
A Sprinkle of flaxseed
Then melt in a pan few teaspoons of honey a good spoon of coconut oil and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
The syrup is then poured over the granola mix and mixed together.
Spread out on a baking tray before walking in the oven on gas mark 4 for 45 mins continually mixing up every 5-10 min to stop any burning
Once finished and cooled add a hand full of raisins then store in an airtight tin
It's proper beaut
