Every so often, someone from the COOK team will hold a lunchtime workshop at our Kitchen. Yesterday it was Rosie and SJ, our Development Chefs, who shared some healthy recipes. They were such a hit, we thought you might like to see them…

Oat & Almond Energy Bites

The perfect dairy-free and egg-free snack!

No Bake & Healthy, these bites are perfect as a snack or after meal treat, and are super easy to make!

This recipe makes 8 bites.

Ingredients

• 120g porridge oats (use gluten free oats if your child has an intolerance to gluten)

• 60g raisins or dark chocolate chips

• 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

• 1 tsp vanilla essence

• 1 tablespoon runny honey

• 80g almond or peanut butter

Method

1. Add the oats and nut butter to a bowl and mix together (for a smoother texture pulse in a blender for a few seconds)

2. Add the vanilla, honey, cinnamon and raisins or chocolate chips and mix to form a sticky dough.

3. If the dough is too sticky, add more oats. If the dough is a bit too dry, add more nut butter to get just the right consistency.

4. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls.

5. Keep in refrigerator and enjoy for up to a week!
