  • Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on my page - it's freakin delicious - but no doubt a few of you are wondering if it's 'healthy'. Well healthy firstly isn't restriction and avoiding foods that make you happy, e.g. haloumi, healthy is enjoying good food moderately and mindfully. Haloumi isn't an everyday cheese though 1) we'd probs go broke 2) it's higher in sodium than other cheeses and whilst a moderate level of good quality salt is necessary for our body we don't need to exceed the RDI of sodium by eating salty cheese everyday 3) whilst

  • All about the fruit in salads at the moment adds
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition All about the fruit in salads at the moment, adds delishhhhh flavour plus quality carbohydrate sources, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre - all the good stuff! This is one of my fave chickpea salads made with the obvious ingredient - chickpeas - and crunchy sprouts, celery, herbs and a scrumptious tahini yoghurt dressing. Nuts would be my other favourite ingredient to add into salads to make them a bit more fancy schmancy and to up the quality of nutrition (in an already nutritious meal lol but why hold back?!?!) - WHAT'S YOURS? Ps. This salad keeps really well for a few
  • Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something. The sprinkles are the best part! Dukkah, sesame seeds, some chopped nuts or herbs, sea salt, ground spices like paprika, coriander, turmeric,

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

The best way to reboot your health routine is to plan ahead. If you’re guilty of reaching for chocolates after dinner, make these healthy peanut butter oat bars and stash them in your freezer. Break off a little after dinner and enjoy something sweet – without the guilt. They are dairy-free, vegan wholefoods goodness with just four ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. The addition of inulin gives them a nice fibre boost. Inulin is a type of soluble fibre that functions as a prebiotic in your gut – a food source for the beneficial bacteria that live there. You can add inulin to your morning oats or in raw snack bars like these scrumptious peanut butter oat bars. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Oat Bars

Dairy Free / Vegan 

Makes 8-10 bars

1.5 cups medjool dates, pitted

1 cup peanut butter (100% pure)

1 cup rolled oats

2 tbs inulin

Line a slice tin with baking paper.

Soak dates in warm water for about 10 minutes and then drain well. Squeeze out any excess water.

Put dates in a blender and blend until the mix forms a paste.

Add oats, peanut butter and inulin to blender and keep blending until crumbly.

Pour in ¼ cup water a little at a time or until the mix forms a fudgey ball.

Press the mix into the lined slice tray until smooth and even on top.

Pop in the freezer for an hour.

Take out of the freezer and cut into 8-10 bars (depending on how thick you like them).

Place the bars in an airtight container with baking paper between any layers and pop in the fridge or back in the freezer.

(They will keep well in the fridge for two weeks and in the freezer for two months.)

Enjoy!
