Nena Foster from First Hand Experience brings you the snack of champions.

First Hand Experience love snack time, whether it be on a train, in the forest or at base camp. They need fuel for their explorations and a snack that is as portable as it is delicious is a must.  Full of fibre, protein and good fats, these biscuits are filling, but thanks to the sweetness of the fruit, they feel like a wholesome treat. You can enjoy these any time of the day, and they even make a great breakfast—hello portable porridge.

Serves 18 biscuits

Allergy info: nuts, may contain gluten

Ingredients:

2 medium ripe bananas, mashed

120g Rude Health Banana Berry Oats or Sprouted Oats

100g almonds, roughly chopped

20g coconut oil, softened

1 large apple, grated with skin on

Zest of 1 orange

¼ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

110g raspberries, slightly squashed

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C/Gas Mark 7 and prepare a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Using a wooden spoon, mix the bananas, oats, almonds, coconut oil, apple, zest, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  3. Fold in the mashed raspberries, being careful not to over-mix.
  4. Using a spoon, dollop a heaped tablespoon of the mixture onto the parchment and flatten with the back of the spoon.
  5. Place the tray of biscuits in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden.
  6. Allow the biscuits to cool before removing from the parchment, as they will continue to firm as they cool.
