In this post, we’re sharing some of the amazing recipes for healthy snacks received during our competition with Earth Goods. Earth Goods brings to UAE mindful products sourced from no less than 20 countries, supporting the local farmers and, of course, contributing to the expansion of the local organic market. They provide ingredients for healthy breakfast and snacks (like oats, granola, agave syrup, flax seeds etc.) but also pasta and cooking ingredients like oils. They also have a whole section of recipes and that’s where I looked first for inspiration.
We asked the mums to tell us some of their recipes so we all can get some inspiration for healthy cooking and baking.
Oats – 1 1/2 cups
Banana oat pancakes
1 cup oats ( Earth Goods oats)
2 heaping spoons Greek yogurt
1 tsp baking powder
vanilla or cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp coconut oilUse your food processor, blender or hand blender and a bowl to prepare the batter. Simply blend everything together until smooth.
Heat a large non-stick pan to medium, cover with butter/coconut oil and pour the batter forming small, palm-sized pancakes. Reduce the heat a bit (these burn fast if the temperature is too high!).
Once bubbles come up and the edges are done, flip using a large spatula. Cook until golden brown and then transfer to a plate.
Serve immediately like this or top with your favorite toppings – fresh fruit, Earth goods syrup, peanut butter or honey.
