So with many a chilly evening and my mind turning to things that make me feel warm and cosy I decided to whip up a healthy tea time snack. It is filling, so simple to make and filled with natural goodness, gluten free, dairy free and nut free. Bon appetite!


Two cups of organic gluten free steel cut oats

Two ripe bananas

Half a cup of unsweetened shredded coconut flakes

One cup of raisins or sultanas

Half a cup of sunflower seeds

One teaspoon of cinnamon

One and a half tablespoons of coconut nectar (or healthy sweetener of choice)

One and a half tablespoons of coconut oil

Half a teaspoon of gluten free baking powder

One tablespoon of apple sauce

Half a cup of almond milk


First peel and chop the bananas into small rounds and add to a mixing bowl

Mash the bananas thoroughly until smooth

Add to the mixing bowl all of the dry ingredients, so oats, cinnamon etc...

Add the coconut oil the apple sauce and almond milk last.

Mix all the ingredients in the bowl until a doughy consistency is achieved.

Shape the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet or tray

Pop them in the oven at 220c for fifteen to twenty minutes

When done remove from the oven and set the clusters out on a rack or plate to cool a little.

Pour yourself some fresh almond milk grab a couple of clusters and enjoy!!
