The fantastic Annabelle Cox, creator of Historical Honey, sent in the below recipe. And we thought it would be rude not to share it.
Thank you so much Annabelle!
We all know how important breakfast is, and there really is no excuse to skip it.
Sure, grabbing a muffin on the way to work is probably easier than this, but your wallet and gut won’t thank you.
Therefore, I’d like to introduce you to a healthy and convenient way to start your day.
The Lazy Breakfast Bar is packed full of goodness and slow-releasing energy that I can easily make it until 2pm before I start getting that lunchtime rumble.
Best of all it requires minimal effort and minimal skill. It is the perfect fitness hack breakfast.
Oh and it’s pretty tasty too.
The recipe below makes 6 seriously substantial portions. Put 5 in a bag and take it to work on Monday and you have breakfast done and dusted for the week. Keep one back for the weekend and on the 7th day put whatever you want in your body.
In the last 8 months of eating this bar fairly religiously I’ve lost a decent stone in weight. I’m not saying it’s all down to the bar, but it definitely stops me snacking and makes me a hella lot more conscious of my other food choices throughout the day.
1 ½ Mugs of Rolled Oats
½ Mug of Flour [Plain/Whole-Wheat Flour]
½ Mug of Seeds [Sunflower Seeds works best]
½ Mug of Whole/Chopped Nuts [I like almonds, hazelnuts or brazil nots]
½ Mug of Fruit Juice [If you don’t have fruit juice just use diluted squash, or a fresh orange…whatever you have tbh]
1 Mug of Chopped Dried Fruit [Dates and apricots are my fav. Buy them pre-chopped and save yourself the hassle. If you are going to chop them by hand, use a pair of scissors. Trust me, dates way easier to chop using scissors]
1 tbsp of Cinnamon
2 tbsp of Sweetener [If you have a sweet tooth I recommend agave syrup or honey. Again, whatever you have]
Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees C
Get a standard mug
Put all ingredients in a bowl/mixer
Stir/mix until mixture is dough-like, not wet. It should not be sticking to the sides of the bowl
Get tin [9inc x 9inc] or whatever the mixture fits in
Rip a sheet of greaseproof paper
Place paper over tin
Spray paper with Frylite* [*other low fat oils available]
Dump mixture onto greaseproof in tin
Flatten mixture into tin with your fingers
Place into oven
Wait 30 mins, or until golden brown
Cut into 6 pieces
Super hack: The bars keep in an air-tight container/bag for 2 weeks, so make double quantities and you’ve got breakfast sorted for the fortnight.
