Carrot & Apple Bites

The Zebra has a thing for biscuits right now, so we whipped up a batch of healthy biscuits that I can also have as part of my breakfast! 

50g seeds (we used a mix of flaxseed, chia and quinoa)
40g wholemeal self raising flour
35g porridge oats
1/2tsp grated ginger
1tsp cinnamon 
40g chopped dried apricot 
100g grated cooking apple
50g grated carrot 
20g chopped pecans 
20g coconut oil
60g honey 
5g orange zest
1tbsp orange juice 
10g grated coconut 

****preheat oven to 180degs

The best tip I can give for cooking with toddlers is get everything ready and prepared before letting them in the kitchen!

Gently heat the coconut oil until it melts and then stir in the honey, orange zest and juice. Leave to one side.

The best thing about the recipe is its so easy! Apart from the grated coconut, add all the remaining ingredients into one bowl. Mix well and then add in the warm coconut oil and orange.

Split the mixture into 6 or 12 biscuits and place on a greased tray. 6 biscuits mean they have around 200 calories each. 
Sprinkle on top the grated coconut.

Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown. 

Once they've cooled, all you need to do is enjoy and not feel any snack-guilt!
