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
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!
