Perfect for breakfast on the go, mid-afternoon energy boost with a nice cup of tea or at any time of day. These are no-cook easily put together biscuits to keep in the biscuit tin for a healthy refuel. I keep all the ingredients for this in a separate airtight storage tub make up a batch quickly. These are also ideal for those of us students in need of a sweet distraction from staring at books.
Healthy Energy Boost Biscuits
50g each of dried dates & dried apricots & 20g dried cranberries
100g porridge oats
30g wheat germ or oat bran
20g desiccated coconut
20g linseeds juice zest of one unwaxed lemon
1 Tablespoon of maple syrup or honey
2 Tablespoons cold-pressed flax oil
Lightly oil a small baking tin ( I use a square 8 ½ inch/22cm size)
Finely chop the dried fruits and add to the rest of the ingredients
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor until firm dough is formed. Press the mixture evenly into your tin to a thickness of about 2cm.
Chill in the fridge for about an hour, then cut into squares ready to eat. Can be stored in the fridge or in an airtight container in the cupboard.
