These really are a ‘sweet’ tasting treat and full of goodness and essential vitamins such as B and C. The blackstrap molasses also add a good source of iron.
- 200 grams/7 oz of oats
- 3 tbsp of sunflower oil
- 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
- 1 tbsp of ground rosehips (try to get these, they are available in health food shops and add a wonderful dimension to the treat recipe)
- 100 grams/4 oz of apple baby food
- 50 grams/2 oz of ground sunflower seeds
Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F. Lightly oil or grease an oil a baking tin.
In a bowl, mix the apple baby food, oil, molasses, and rosehips together.
Pour the ground sunflower seeds and oats into a saucepan and stir to combine.
Mix the apple mix and oats mix together in the saucepan, stirring continuously until the mixture is all melted together, should be a nice thick gooey mess!
Pour the mixture into the baking tray and flatten or smash it down with the back of a tablespoon. Put the tray in the oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes – the mixture should be a lovely golden brown.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Cut it into bars and store it in the fridge for up to a week in a well covered airtight container.
