HEALTHY ENERGY FLAPJACKS RECIPE

Happy Monday!! I hope you’re enjoying the good weather (not today tho), I definately am!

Today I’m bringing you a new delicious, yet healthy recipe 🙂 As you may know, I’m always on the run and I often find myself getting an energy bar between breaks. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of vegan natural bar brands that I adore but also some of this brands can be a little bit expensive and some of them are packed with oil, salt and preservatives… I thought, why not make my own energy bars? If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know about my “energy balls recipe” and how much I love them, but this time, I wanted to try something different.

I came up with a super low fat Flapjack Energy Bar recipe and guys: I’m in love. I already ate like half of them since I made this recipe (about 3 days ago).

For this deliciousness you will need:

– 1 1/2 CUP of organic oats

  • 1 TBSP goji berries
  • 1 TBSP organic cocoa powder
  • 200gr organic medjool dates (about 12 dates)
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds (I get mine from GRAZE –> click here to buy)
  • 3 TBSP soy milk or oat milk (I only had soy in the fridge so that’s what I used)

PREPARATION:

On a bowl add your TBSP of chia seeds and 3 TBSP of water, mix well and leave a side for about 5 min. The water will make the chia grow and for a thick gooey paste, we will use this as our “egg” to make sure everything sticks together. Did you know Chia Seeds are super rich in Omega? 🙂

Next, dip your medjool dates and goji berries in a cup with warm water and leave them for a bit so they hydrate and are easier to blend. After a few minutes, rinse your dates and goji berries and blend on a food processor with 3TBSP of soy milk, until you get a creamy thick paste like this one:

Now it’s time to make the magic mix! On a big bowl add your oats, cocoa powder, your chia egg and the creamy date/goji paste . Mix well until you achieve a “flapjack dough consistency”. 

On a rectangular container (make sure you can put it in the freezer) you will put some parchment paper and add your mixture. Then you will spread it until it’s all compact and uniform. I recommend you leave about 1,5cm of thickeness. Freeze overnight.

The day after you will wake up to a bach of about 12 flapjacks. You just need to cut them into nice looking bars!

What I like to do is wrap them in individual packages so I can take them with me on the go or give them as a gift so someone 🙂 For the packages I used parchment paper and some hemp cord (which you can re-use afterwards if it doesn’t get messy).

I hope you give this recipe a try and please let me know in the comments below if you have any questions, or just to say if you liked it! See you soon in another post!

Have an awesome week! 🙂

Hello! Welcome! This is my first post! 😀

Finally the time has come. I’ve got enough time to sit and write down my emotions, thoughts and ideas…

If you don’t know me, my name is Nuria. Nice to meet you 🙂 (click HERE to get to know me a bit better)

Yesterday it was my last day at work. I had the pleasure to work with lots of lovely people for the last 10 months here in the South of Tenerife. I got to be a sales assistant at PANDORA and although I had nearly no time for other thing than work, my work mates were the loveliest I could ever ask for. I got to know a lot of people of all kinds with lots of stories and wisdom and I got to learn loads about the Jewelry Industry!

Because good byes aren’t my favourite thing, I thought some chocolate would relieve that nostalgic mood… I made BROWNIES! 😀 Click HERE if you want the recipe!

I took them to work and I think I did a good job! they were vegan and fat free!

I hope you like this idea and let me know if you try the recipe (is from one of my favourite food blogs ever) and you love it as much as I do!

Hola! Bienvenido@! Éste es mi primer post! 😀

Finalmente el momento ha llegado. Por fin tengo tiempo suficiente para escribir mis emociones, pensamientos e ideas…

Si no me conoces, mi nombre es Nuria. Encantada de conocerte 🙂 (haz click AQUÍ para conocerme un poquito mejor)

Ayer fue mi último día en el trabajo. He tenido el placer de trabajar con mucha gente adorable éstos últimos 10 meses aquí en el Sur de Tenerife. Fui vendedora en PANDORA y a pesar de no tener tiempo para otra cosa que no fuera el trabajo, mis compañeros han sido los mejores que podría haber deseado. He conocido un montón de gente de todo tipo llenos de historia y sabiduría y también he podido aprender mucho sobre la Industria de la Joyería!

Y como obviamente las despedidas no son mi fuerte, he pensado que un poco de chocolate aliviaría aquel estado nostálgico… así que hice BROWNIES! 😀 Click AQUÍ si quieres la receta!

Los llevé al trabajo y creo que quedaron bastante bien! Eran veganos y sin grasa!

Espero que te guste ésta idea y hazme saber si pruebas la receta (es de uno de mis blogs de comida favoritos) y te encanta tanto como a mí!

Gracias por leer ésta entrada y por ser parte de mi viaje! Esto es solo el comienzo…
