This recipe is another great one if you’re in a massive morning meltdown and don’t have time to find matching socks let alone think about making something healthy to have for breakfast!
It’s a great energy booster thanks to all those lovely oats and their slow releasing energy, and it’s also packed with protein and healthy fats to keep your tummy happy until your next meal. The raisins make it super moist and juicy and the cinnamon, while not only adding that gorgeous warm, sweet and spicy flavour, also serves to regulate blood sugar and stave off any crazy sugar cravings!
I’m so in love with this loaf as it’s so insanely tasty but it’s also saved my dipping energy levels on many a breakfast/elevenses/teatime occasion, and if you’ve seen me hangry you’ll know that’s a very good thing! In fact Mr H should probably be very grateful to this creation as it’s definitely saved him a whole load of earache!
Not only is this totally scrumptious on its own but it also lends itself very well to being spread with mountains of nut butter or a generous spoonful of chia jam too – you have to try it!
- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 2 cups oats
- 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup raisins
For the cinnamon maple drizzle
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
Pop the oats in a blender and whizz for a minute or so until they form a flour-like consistency. Pour this into a bowl and add the buckwheat flour, chia seeds and cinnamon and stir until totally combined.
Now add in the wet ingredients and mix together well. Finally stir in the raisins and you’re ready to get baking!
Preheat your oven to 180 and spoon the mixture into a greased or lined loaf mould or tin and bake for around 40 mins, until a fork comes out clean. Leave to cool while you make the drizzle – simply combine the maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir until all mixed together. Drizzle over the loaf, cut into slices and serve!
Love, Mrs H xx
