NEW Blackcurrant Spiced Apple Immunity 850g
INGREDIENTS:
• ½ cup Harraways NEW Blackcurrant Spiced Apple Immunity Oats
• ¼ tsp baking powder
• 1 egg
• 1 ripe banana
• Pinch of salt
• 1 Tablespoon of berries
• 1 Tablespoon of nut butter
• 1 teaspoon chocolate chips

TOPPINGS:
- 2 Tablespoons of Greek unsweetened yoghurt
- Handful of berries
METHOD :
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Spray a ramekin or oven-safe dish with cooking spray.
2. In a blender, blend the oats, baking powder, egg, banana and salt.
3. Gently stir through the berries & chocolate and pour into the ramekin.
4. Place a spoon of nut butter into the middle of the mixture. Use a deeper dish if you want it gooey inside (such as an 8 inch ramekin) or a wider dish if you want it firmer (7 x 5 inch pan).
5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges pull away and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Or microwave for 1-2 minutes. When using a microwave ensure the bowl is twice the size of the batter as it will rise while baking.

6. Serve with Greek unsweetened yoghurt and berries.

TIP: If you would prefer some texture, you can skip the blending step and just mix the ingredients.

Harraways NEW Blackcurrant Spiced Apple Immunity Oats are fortified with iron and zinc. Iron and zinc are micronutrients important in immune health. Infants, children and adolescents (particularly young females), women of childbearing age and older adults are more at risk of low iron and zinc intakes (Wyness 2011). Iron specifically plays a role in immune health as it is essential for immune cells proliferation and maturation (Abbaspour 2013). Eating too little iron also increases your risk of Iron deficiency anaemia, which results in weakness, fatigue (tiredness and lack of energy), problems with concentration or memory and reduced immunity against viruses. Zinc is an important co-factor for more than 100 enzymes involved in metabolic pathways, endocrine function, and immune integrity.
