Apple & Hazelnut Oats Brownies

Oats

Whether it’s instant, quick cook, or rolled, oats in its various forms are especially great for digestive health. This is because oats are especially rich in soluble and insoluble dietary fibre.

The former (e.g. beta glucan) is absorbed into the blood and has been proven to help slow digestion, keep you feeling fuller for longer, as well as transport damaging cholesterol-bile rich acids out of the body. The latter is insoluble in our blood; however, it plays its part by speeding up the movement and processing of waste so it can easily pass out of the body too!

Tip: You don’t need a particular brand of oats for this recipe, as any type works just fine. Always remember to check the nutrition label to check that it has minimal to no added sugar! 

Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, truly! While this recipe calls for 1 green apple, any medium apple (with a diameter roughly 7.6 centimetres and 182 grams) will still provide the essential ABCs of your daily vitamin intake (A, B1, B2, B6, C) and more. Vitamin B, for example, is crucial for optimal nerve health. Such vitamins and minerals are mostly in the skin, so eat them unpeeled for reap these health benefits!  

Not used to the tantalising tang of green apples yet? Swap them for their red siblings! Get a bag of the crunchiest and sweetest France Organic Juliet Apples or South Africa Candy Apples instead!

Hazelnuts

Hazelnuts tick all the right boxes to keep your ticker, well, ticking! It boasts high levels of good unsaturated fats (e.g. oleic acid) that can help to lower the levels of bad saturated fat in the blood. While this means that it is relatively higher in fat than the previous two ingredients featured, it is beneficial for heart health when consumed in moderation.
