Recipe for low GI Bars
Low GI chocolate covered biscuit bars are so easy to make and very versatile. You can have them simply as a healthy low GI energy boost with a nice mug of tea or as a pudding base to then add bananas and natural yogurt.
What you need:
Cup of oats
Cup of mixed seeds/chopped nuts
4- 6 heaped massive tablespoons of Meridian Peanut Butter (I only use this as it is 100% nuts nothing at all added, no sugar or palm oil)
Small bar of Dark chocolate (I used Green & Blacks as it is my favourite)
Put all the ingredients besides the chocolate into a bowl and mix together into a ball. Flatten down into a baking tin lined with greaseproof paper.
I sprinkle the top layer again with Linseed and press them down with a spoon as I love these little seeds and they are so nutritious.
Place the tin in the oven for about 25 minutes till the top looks golden. (Gas mark 6)
Using a sharp knife cut into slices.
Warm the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of water and coat a thin layer over the top of each slice.
They look so moreish and I am a real fatty but one is definitely enough for me to leave me feeling fully content.
