Earlier this week we shared a post which discussed ways you could keek your gut healthy. Holly from Food Envy London shared a list of foods you could try and add into your diet, but it can often be hard to think of ideas so today we have done that for you.
Holly has developed four recipes which include foods from her list and even better she’ll be making them next week for meal delivery customers so if you’re local and fancy trying any of these contact Holly here.
Food Envy London Recipes
250 g rolled oats (gluten-free, if needed)
80 g raw almonds, coarsely chopped
80 g raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla
1 pinch sea salt
3 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
3 very ripe bananas, peeled and smashed
Preheat the oven 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, vanilla and salt.
In a separate bowl add coconut oil, and bananas. Use your hands to mix the ingredients completely smooth.
Add the banana mixture to the dry mixture and combine well, using your hands, for about a minute, so all is well-coated and clumpy.
Turn out and spread the granola in an even layer on the baking tray.
Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, check at around 10 minutes and turn the granola over with a wooden spoon.
Allow to cool completely before putting in a container.
