This lovely gluten, nut and egg-free snack provides great energy before sport. This recipe does contain dairy. For a dairy-free option, replace butter with coconut fat.

1 hour makes 12


11/2 cups apple sauce
½ cup butter, plus extra for greasing
½ cup honey
¼ cup ground flax seed
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 cups certified gluten-free rolled oats
1 cup raisins


1.Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 16 x 16 cm square baking pan with butter.
2.In a medium saucepan, whisk together all the ingredients, except the oats and raisins, over medium heat.
3.Stir regularly until the mixture begins to bubble, then remove from the heat. Combine with the oats and raisins, in a bowl or in the saucepan if large enough.
4.Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
5.Bake for 30—35 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
6.Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares or bars using a serrated knife.
7.Store in a sealed container to prevent drying.
