Fuel your teens

We are in exam season at the moment, and when I asked my son how I could support him best, he replied “Just make sure there is plenty for me to eat!”. Sounds like a fair deal – I feed, he works!

This is a lovely recipe I found and adapted to make a more-ish biscuit which is full of healthy fats, complex carbs, fibre, protein and an abundance of vitamins and minerals.

High vitamin biscuits

1¼ cup oats

¼ cup ground almonds

½ cup sunflower seeds

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

¼ cup flaked almonds

¼ cup sesame seeds

3 tbs chia seeds

¼ cup cranberries

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup nut butter ( I used almond butter)

1 egg

Mix all ingredients together. Shape into 12 biscuits and place spaced apart on a greased baking tray. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes in a 180ºc oven. Leave the biscuits on the tray after baking to solidify further.

This is a great recipe as it is so simple. These biscuits are very delicious and generally don’t last more than a couple of days in my house. Apparently, the teenage brain needs a serious amount of fuelling!!!
