Secret veg chocolate superfood baked oats

Yes you read that right, it’s possible to sneak veg into oats without knowing it, trust me you won’t know its there!
I did this by using a mix of cacao powder and VeganTek choc superfood blend for a chocolatey flavour plus the colour covers the courgette so nobody will see it and the bonus is that the water from the veg gets absorbed by the oats meaning it’s not soggy.
This superfood blend is quite sweet which means I didn’t need to add any extra sweetness, so this is sugar free too. I like to top it with berries for a burst of juiciness and some creamy nut butter to finish it off.

Lemon blueberry bars with sneaky beans

These bars are very handy for quick mornings or a gut friendly snack, you can bake them the day before and have these ready to go for the next few days. They’re packed with fibre and antioxidants and even have some sneaky beans in there too for the win!

Berry bar benefits

I really like these with some citrusy, tangy baobab, some plant yogurt and stewed berries. You can pack all of this into a tupperware dish to take with you to work if needed. I also like that I’m getting beans in which adds some protein without using protein powders and helps keep you full longer.
Another bonus is that they’re full of gut friendly ingredients including: chickpeas/white beans, baobab (prebiotic), oats, polyphenol packed berries and probiotic plant yogurt. A breakfast/snack that ALSO feeds your gut too! Yeah that’s my type of food =)

Veggie meatball bean casserole

This recipe is so easy, 1 bowl/baking dish is all that’s required, it’s packed with veg (including the “meatballs”) and therefore also has lots of fiber plus colour too, after all, it’s important to eat a rainbow (no not those sweets you grew up on) but a variety of wholesome plants and foods.

This is becoming one of my favourite new recipes, I really like how easy it is, it’s full of flavour and you can adjust this recipe very easily to suit your own needs/tastes. It’s a great way to get those veggies into kids especially if you don’t tell them you used veggie based meatballs (could also try to sub in some falafel and hope they don’t notice!).
