Hannah’s low carb biscuit bars

These very low carb/high protein snack bars are fantastic for that moment when you would reach for cake/biscuit/chocolate – something with your hot drink to keep you going until lunch or dinner time.
Cinnamon is amazing – it contains compounds that promote insulin function, improve blood glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity, so it’s very helpful when you’re feeling hungry. It also slows down the speed at which food is digested so it lowers the ‘glycaemic load’ of your food. You might want to play with the amount, to suit your taste.


In a bowl, mix:


100g oat bran

15g goji berries

25g chopped nuts

25g flaked almonds

15g ground almonds

A tsp cinnamon


Whisk together:

1 egg (or 50ml chick pea water)

1tbsp water

1 tbsp Xylitol (e.g. Natural Sweet)

Half a tsp of vanilla essence

Combine the ingredients and press into a 7” square cake tine, lined with parchment. Score into 9 squares. You could use a small, round sandwich tin and score into triangles. Bake in a fairly hot over for 15 minutes. Turn out, peel off the paper and gently separate the pieces before you allow to cool. Keeps well in an airtight container.
