Quick Snack - Walnut & Oat Biscuits - Wheat Free

I try to keep all of my meals to around 300 calories which means I can have 5 for 1500 and then a bit extra depending on my calorie goals for the day.

I like protein bars, but the chemicals in them have recently been giving me immediate stomach pain straight after I eat them.

This morning I took a very high calorie recipe from a fitness book and made my own walnut and oat biscuits. They are not by any means high protein, but so yummy I don't care.

Dry Ingredients
100g rolled oats
20g chopped walnuts
10g dessicated coconut
15g vanilla protein powder (next time I'll use LB crunch and see what happens)

Wet Ingredients
20g butter melted
2 tablespoons of sugar free maple syrup

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. It doesn't quite stick together on it's own so put it in a muffin tray (divided the mixture into six).

Cook in the oven for 20 minutes on 175 c

1 muffin/biscuit (1/6th of whole recipe)

I just had two for my mid morning meal with a cup of tea. Oh my god they were so good. Now I just have to refrain from eating the other 4 ...

    Ohhhh those do sound good! I'd love to try them but I know I would eat them all at once which is why I can't do any baking. I'm a little piggy. :)


  2. Okay mine are in the oven, didnt have any walnuts so used pistachios instead - sounded too good to resist
