Cancer Care Bake Stall
On the 30th of July 2016 I attended the annual village fete. I set up a stall with my sister, who was selling second hand clothes to raise money for her hike up mount Kilimanjaro. I was selling cakes (made by myself), all healthy of course (although I didn’t tell my punters that) in order to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. The day was a relative success, I had raised just under my target and sold almost all of my healthy desserts. The greatest success of the day however was the responses I received from some of my customers . The raw flapjack recipe in particular went down a storm. Due to the wonderful response, I have decided to post the recipe so that you can all enjoy them as well.
This healthy oat breakfast bar can be enjoyed first thing in the morning, as a snack on the go, or as a dessert.

Peanut butter can be substituted for any nut butter.
Maple syrup can be substituted for any natural sweetener.
Raisins can be substituted for any dried fruit.
Pumpkin seeds can be substituted for any nuts or seeds.
Superfoods; maca, baobab & lucuma all work brilliantly.
Dark chocolate chips.
The second most popular recipe of the day was actually a recipe I posted on HealthyJon about a year ago, the one and only Black Bean Protein Brownies! They are fantastic and of course I didn’t tell anyone they had protein powder in them, I just watched them devour that cakey goodness, listened to their compliments and then told them that they contained no refined sugars and contained 15g of protein per brownie. Hehe.
