Cakey cereal barsĀ 

First off i’d I would just like to wish everyone a Happy mothers day šŸ™‚ I hope you had a nice time with your loved ones and family. Secondly, its recipe time! Over the next couple of weeks I am going to be travelling about a bit, so decided to come up with a recipe for a snack that is filling but easy to pop in a bag, all ready if I get a bit peckish. The bars are quite dense, but moist enough not to crumble and I have tried out two flavours.

Strawberry and chocolate:

1/2 punnet grated strawberries 

2 handfuls of rasins

2 spoonfuls of coconut oil

1/4 teaspoon baking powder 

200g self raising flour

50g oatmeal

Pear and pumpkin seed:

2 grated pears

2 handfuls of raisins 

2 handfuls of pumpkin seeds

50g oatmeal

200g self raising flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder 

2 spoonfuls of coconut oil

Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix until the mixture is easily rolled into a ball. If the mixture isnt moist enough, add some soya milk. Line a baking tray with coconut oil, then press the mixture into a square shape, an inch in depth. Drizzle with sugar-free syrup then bake for 30 minutes at 180 celsius. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then cut into bars. I wrapped my bars in clingfilm then freezed them.  Enjoy!

Stay happy, stay confident.

Miraculous Mug Cake

Inspiration for today’s recipe is a result of my essay induced snack cravings. I’m sure you have all experienced a sweet tooth craving while you are studing, are relaxing after work or 3 hours in to a movie marathon. Instead of binging out on unhealthy snacks, behold at my yummy warm cake in a mug.

Ingredients:

1 scoop banana protein powder

1 scoop self raising flour

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Enough soya milk to make the mixture stir-able

A handful of chopped dates

Myprotein syrup

Add a some syrup to the bottom of a mug, then add all the other ingredients to the mug and stir to a smooth consistency. Microwave for 2-3 minutes until cooked through. Drizzle syrup on top then enjoy!


Be Confident, be happy
