25g ground almonds

15g milled flaxseed

10g chia seeds

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Allergens

Nuts

Directions

1 1. Preheat the oven to 170c (180c not fan assisted / gas mark 4)
2 2. Chop your strawberries into small chunks and gently heat in a saucepan - use a wooden spoon to mix and mash until they are all mushy!
3 3. Mix in the chia seeds and 1 tablespoon of honey (around 20g) and then leave to one side (off the heat) - this will form into your jam
4 4. Now mix the oats, ground almonds, quinoa flakes, flaxseeds and cinnamon in a bowl
5 5. Melt the coconut oil, almond butter and remaining honey in another saucepan
6 6. Pour the runny mixture into your oat mix and stir really well
7 7. Line your baking dish with parchment paper and squish half your oat mixture into the bottom of it
8 8. Make sure it’s squished down really well (this will stop it being too crumbly after it’s cooked) and then spread your delicious jam over the top
9 9. Now add the other half of the oat mixture on top, making sure it covers all the jam and gently squish it down
10 10. Bake in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes until slightly golden. Leave it to cool before slicing into yummy squares!

Fun fact! Quinoa is known as ‘grain of the Gods’! And it deserves to be – it is packed full of nutrients which help keep you body strong such as manganese, copper and iron!
