Granola squares - apple and cinnamon

These are great for breakfast on the go or a quick pre workout fuelling! Naturally sweetened with the apples and the dates, plus a great dose of fibre, omega 3, iron and zinc.


Ingredients (makes about 16 squares):

  • 2 apples, peeled cored and roughly chopped (any eating apple will do)

  • 125g pitted medjool or soft dates

  • 100g nut butter (and type you like)

  • 100ml milk or plant based milk (I used almond)

  • 175g rolled oats

  • 45g ground flaxseed

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 75g seeds - I used pumpkin seeds

  • 75g chopped nuts (optional extra - I used chopped walnuts)

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180/160 (fan) degrees and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper

  • Put the apples, dates, nut butter and milk into a food processor and blitz until the mixture is relatively smooth and puree like

  • In a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients and then add the puree mixture and combine well

  • Press the mixture into the tin and bake for approx 30 mins until the mixture is firm and golden brown

  • Allow to cool before cutting in to 16 squares


You can store in the fridge for up to a week in an air tight container. Or they freeze well too.

Nutrition wise, each square is about 190 kcals and 6g of protein, 11g fat, 15g carbs, 3g fibre.
