In between finishing off my ‘Nutrition and Entrepreneurship’ assignment and running I’ve been experimenting today with another healthy dessert.
- Gluten free oats
- Chia seeds
- Ground nuts
- Agave nectar
- Date syrup
- Pomegranate seeds
I just blended the ingredients altogether and ended up with a thick paste that I put in to a star mould. Once it was chilled it was easier to turn out and had a flapjack consistency.
- Chia seeds – A friend of mine introduced me to these and they are packed with antioxidants and omega 3 which is good for heart health
- Dates – have more potassium than bananas, an essential mineral needed by the body for heathy muscles – a 30g portion of dried fruits count as one of your ‘5 a day’
- Pomegranate – contain polyphenols that have been shown to be beneficial at slowing the ageing process
Another delicious healthy dessert and a great treat after a long run.
