I often walk through the supermarket checking out what they have to offer, what’s new in store, what can I give my son and myself for lunchbox snacks.
Everytime I thought I found something that would be good for us, I turned it over to read the nutrients and it would be high sugar, high sodium or would have an ingredient I couldn’t even pronounce in it.
DO WE REALLY WANT TO PUT THAT IN OUR BODIES OR OUR CHILDREN’S BODIES?
Even a lot of baby foods were high in these ingredients! It’s crazy.
I decided this week to create a mini lunch box snack that I used to enjoy when I was in primary school “little bites” for Cruzies lunch box. I’m sure I wouldn’t mind them in mine either!
Recipe is simple – 1 banana, 30g organic oats, 30mls of my green juice (kale, spinach and coconut water), can just use coconut water, 1 egg, cinnamon and 30g of wholemeal flour. Blend all ingredients together in a blender or you can mix a bowl of you wish it to be more chunky.
Pour into cake mould and and bake on 180degrees for 15minutes.
Note – can double or triple the recipe and add in blueberries or extra mix ins.
