Easy Flapjacks

Traditional flapjacks use golden syrup and sugar in their recipes, but I use coconut nectar.

Coconut nectar comes from the sap of the blossom on a coconut palm. It has a low GI which means it wont spike blood sugar in the way that conventional sugar does. It is also high in inulin, which is a prebiotic fibre needed for healthy digestion. This makes it a great substitute to normal processed white cane sugar.

Did you know how amazing oats are too?

Oats are extremely high in beta glucan which is a soluble fibre well known for its cholesterol lowering properties. It is also very effective at helping the body to balance blood sugar levels and maintain healthy gut bacteria.
