Now this probably comes under the heading “wierd things Rebecca likes to eat” but i’m proud of my often strange food cravings. This is what i would call a pick- me- up- snack. And its good for so many reasons: its jam- packed with nutrients and natural fats, its energy- boosting, its sugar- less, its vegan, its filling, its delicious! It lasts in the fridge for a week and you can take as little (or as much) as you desire.

(vegan, can be gluten- free if you use suitable oats, serves about 12)
