This British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week, we've invited Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, Genna Nelson to share her top tip for a healthy, tasty grab-and-go snack. If you are craving a delicious and nutritious bite, Genna's recipe on Flapjacks makes for a great afternoon or mid-morning pick-me-up. Packed full of fibre and plant protein, this convenient easy-to-make recipe can leave you feeling satisfied and energised! 

Ingredients (Makes About 20 Flapjacks) 

3 Mugs of Oats (360g)  

2 Bananas (200g) 

6 Tablespoons maple syrup 

6 Tablespoons cashew butter (or any nut butter works) 

4 Tablespoons coconut oil, plus extra for greasing 



Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C) 

Place the oats into a mixing bowl 

Mash the bananas with a fork and add them to a saucepan with the maple syrup, cashew butter and coconut oil. Allow it to simmer until it forms a liquid 

Pour the liquid over the oats and stir well so that they're fully covered 

Grease a baking tray with the coconut oil. Transfer the flapjack mix into the baking tray, pressing it down firmly with a spatula so that it's very compact. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the top starts to brown 

Once it's cooked, take the tray out of the oven and leave it to fully cool before slicing the flapjacks up
