Free Healthy Recipe - Apple Oat Bars

Low fat, Low GI, Low sugar

A low kilojoule snack which is also filling and low GI - so it provides sustained energy.
Sweetened with a combination of honey and orange juice, instead of sugar.
Walnuts provide Omega 3 polyunsaturated fats.

Great for when you're on the go and also for kids' lunch boxes.

1 cup oats
2 Granny Smith apples coarsely grated
½ cup sultanas
1 egg
½ cup apple juice
½ cup honey
30 grams walnuts

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a 3cm deep, 16cm x 28cm (base)baking pan with baking paper.

Mix together the dry ingredients - sift the flour, baking soda and spices into a large bowl. Add the oats, apple and sultanas and stir to combine.

Mix together the wet ingredients - in a separate bowl, whisk together the
yoghurt, egg, apple juice and honey. Add to the flour mixture and using a
metal spoon, fold until just combined. Do not over-mix.

Spoon this mixture into the prepared baking tray and sprinkle with walnuts. Bake in a preheated oven for 40 - 45 minutes, or until a
skewer inserted into the centre comes clean. Remove from the oven and
allow to cool completely before cutting into 18 pieces.

This recipe also works with maple syrup instead of honey, or top with flaked almonds instead of honey.
The bars can be frozen for later use as well.

Makes 18 servings (serve = one slice)
