How to: easy, tasty, low sugar way to boost immunity

Mounting research suggests that getting enough fibre (particularly prebiotic – which feed the good bacteria) can help promote healthy immunity. It has even been shown to reduce the risks of developing autoimmune conditions like Coeliac disease. Something that is on the rise. Click here for more. This appears to be particularly important during pregnancy and into the early years as the gut microbiome develops. We also know most people don’t get enough…

Below is one of our favourite quick, easy, tasty and low sugar/high protein way to  get more. Particularly good for pregnancy and small people. 

All about lots of prebiotic fibre:

This recipe contains oats, bananas and chia seeds, all great sources of prebiotic fibre. Prebiotic fibre feeds the good bacteria in our gut and helps with the production of short chain fatty acids. Also known as the hidden heroes of immunity. Something we know is key to fighting inflammation in the body. Click here as to why this is something to tackle in large doses. 

Here are the ingredients you need for this quick, easy tasty snack (n.b feel free to add in others you fancy)

How to:

1) preheat your oven to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F. Grease and line your baking tray. 

2) take two bowls – one to combine the dry ingredients and mix together and another for the wet. Whisk the wet ingredients together so they are thoroughly mixed. 

3) once both are mixed together fold the wet ingredients into the dry and make sure they’re thoroughly mixed. 

4) into your tin, into the oven and bake until a knife comes out clean from the centre. Around 20 minutes or so when it’s starting to look golden. 

5) let it cool and cut into squares. The good news is these can freeze (pop in the oven to reheat) or last a couple of days in the fridge. 

Eat them on the go or with your favourite topping. We like ours with a scoop of Greek yogurt and some berries. Enjoy and please tag us on Instagram if you make them: @thejourneydotcom.
