I had some overripe strawberries in the fridge this week, so needed to either use them in a smoothie or get creative and use them in a new recipe…. And I decided on the latter!

(My toddler loves to “help” me bake)!

Here it is:


250g punnet of strawberries, chopped

3 x cups of oats

3 x eggs

1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted

1 tsp baking powder

3tbsp. honey

2 tsp vanilla essence


Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Place the strawberries, eggs and coconut oil into a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Add in the oats, baking powder, vanilla essence and honey and stir to combine.

Pour into a bread loaf pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

My 2 year old loved these and I had a slice after each workout. As the oats are high energy carbohydrates, they make the perfect post-workout snack to replenish tired muscles. Enjoy!
