So this recipe is super easy. Great for many health ailments. Ooo and delicious and filling!
The rude health porridge oats I used pack a real nutritional punch. With 5 seeds and grains. Porridge oats, jumbo oats, oatmeal, barley flakes, rye flakes, golden linseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, buckwheat flakes and quinoa flakes!!!!
250g of porridge oats (rude health 5 grain 5 seed is the make I used) 50g dark good quality chocolate grated (vegan or dairy depending on your preference) 2 tbsp of tinned prunes in apple juice 2 tbsp of coconut oil 2 tbsp of milk of your choice coconut works really well
Gently melt the coconut oil, and chocolate. Bowl over a bowl of boiling water, stir until has combined a little. I then whizzed up the prunes and chocolate combo in my blender/smoothie maker.
Then add this to a bowl with the oats. Stir until well mixed. I then added 2 tbsp of milk (I used coconut).
You now need to place some grease proof paper into a tray or dish. Then flatten the mixture evenly.
Refrigerate for at least an hour. Then you're good to go. I will be storing mine in the fridge in an airtight container. Will keep for a week ......pah will it heck!!!!😝
My little helper loved these!

What are the Health Benefits of grains?
Studies show that eating whole grains instead of refined grains lowers the risk of many chronic diseases. While benefits are most pronounced for those consuming at least 3 servings daily, some studies show reduced risks from as little as one serving daily. The message: every whole grain in your diet helps!
Of course, these benefits are most pronounced in the context of an overall healthy diet. No one food – even whole grains – will guarantee good health. It's also important to remember that some whole grain foods are healthier than others. Plain grains -- from brown rice and quinoa to wheat berries –– and whole grain pasta should be a regular feature on your table, with processed grains eaten less often.
