Date, Vanilla and Macadamia Nut Flapjack

Comment

Date, Vanilla and Macadamia Nut Flapjack

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp liquid sweetener (eg. honey, maple syrup etc)
  • 3 medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cups jumbo rolled oats
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Place the coconut oil, sweetener, dates and vanilla bean powder into a saucepan and heat until the dates begin to dissolve into the mixture. Using the back of a spoon, try to break them down (they don’t have to completely dissolve).
  3. Add in the nuts and oats to the saucepan and take it off the heat. Mix it all together so the oats are fully coated.
  4. Place the mixture into a dish and place in the oven for 10min or until it starts to turn golden on top.
  5. Leave to cool to allow the coconut oil to harden (if it’s not cool, it will be soft and won’t stick together)
  6. Enjoy :-)

Vegetable Fritters

Vegetable Fritters

(serves 2)

  • 4 eggs
  • 400g mixed vegetables (I use broad beans, peas, sweet corn and chopped spinach)- you can use frozen veg but defrost beforehand. I like using frozen spinach for these.
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • Juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 handful of coriander or 2 drops of doTERRA coriander essential oil
  • Black pepper or 1 drop of doTerra black pepper essential oil
  • Coconut oil for cooking

 

  1. Place all of the ingredients (except coconut oil) in a big mixing bowl and stir until everything is mixed together and there are no lumps of flour or unmixed egg.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
  3. When the coconut oil is hot enough, using a tablespoon, place 1 spoon of the mixture in the pan. Repeat this until the pan is full. 
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes then flip to cook on the other side.
  5. After a couple of minutes the fritters should be cooked so place on a serving dish. If you have more mixture, repeat this process until it has all gone. 
  6. If you want to keep the fritters warm you can put the oven on low (about 80-100 degrees) or you can save them and eat them cold (great for a pack lunch!).
  7. Serve with a massive side salad and enjoy! ☺

  4. When the dates are done, place them in a blender with the water, cinnamon and vanilla and blitz until a puree has formed.

  6. Pour this mixture into the baking tray and press down so it’s tightly packed.
