Here is a deliciously simple one to brighten up your mornings! A light, tasty yet very filling breakfast bowl of overnight oats, made lovingly with lucuma and cinnamon to sweeten your world up a little. Packed with health, Lucuma powder is made from the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree, which is native to Peru, Chile and Equador, and provides 14 essential trace elements, including a considerable amount of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. It has a caramel-like flavour and is a great healthy way to naturally sweeten and flavour your dishes without raising your blood sugar levels. Added to the dish are chia seeds which will keep you full and hydrated. They contain calcium and phosphorous which promote bone health, fibre which promotes digestive health, omega 3 to reduce inflammation. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. They are high in protein and regulate insulin levels. So..... can you imagine a better way to start your day?!
You know when you get the hankering for something sweet? You want it to fill a hunger hole and keep yourself going until lunch or dinner? Sweets just don't cut it. They give you that instant rush and then you slump further than you were originally! An apple is great but doesn't always fill you up enough. You're in the mood for a biscuit/cookie type snack, but you don't want to feel guilty afterwards? Well, this is right up your street then!
One of the (many) great things about these is that they don't require any special equipment to make them, which makes them super easy and fuss free to whip up. As long as you have bananas and oats then you can pretty much throw in anything else you like, and 20 minutes later you have a batch of the most deliciously chewy energy boosting bites EVER!
