Oats contain a soluble fibre that has been clinically proven to lower cholesterol in the digestive tract, the high fibre content makes them an obvious choice for easing constipation and they are very rich in B vitamins which are essential for supporting the body during stressful times.  They support adrenal gland function and nervous system activity and are essential for energy production at a cellular level.

Ingredients (makes 6-10 squares)

2 tablespoons coconut oil plus extra for greasing

2 apples

2 tablespoons honey

180g porridge oats

1 or 2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 tablespoon dried cranberries (optional)

2 tablespoon mixed pumpkin seeds (optional)

How to make

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease a 20cm square baking tin with coconut oil.

Cut the apples into quarters, remove the seeds, then place them, unpeeled, in a food processor;

Process to a coarse purée, adding a splash of water if necessary.

Melt the coconut oil and honey together in a pan over a medium-high heat. Once the oil and honey have combined, stir in the apple purée and stir thoroughly to form a sticky mixture.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared tin, pressing down well, and bake for around 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
