oat and nut bars recipe for your healthy pregnancy breakfast

Looking for a yummy, healthy pregnancy snack? Our Oatie Bars are a simple addition to your healthy pregnancy diet and ideal pre-workout fuel!

These delicious bars are full of fruit, nuts and oats, making them ideal for a quick burst of energy before or after your pregnancy workout. Dates are surprisingly good as part of your pregnancy diet โ€“ they are high in potassium and contain plenty of fibre whilst brazil nuts are full of selenium โ€“ essential to support your immune system.


115gms unsalted butter
2 tbsps golden syrup
1 egg beaten
85gms ground almonds
115gms chopped dates
55gms chopped brazil nuts
85gms rolled oats
25gms sesame seeds
25gms of crushed flaxseeds


  1. Lightly grease an 18cm square shallow baking tin with butter and preheat the oven to 1800
  2. Make sure the butter is at room temperature (slightly soften it in the microwave if not!) and beat it with the golden syrup until creamy.
  3. Add the beaten egg and the ground almonds and mix well.
  4. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  5. Press into the tin and cook in the oven for 20-25 mins until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  6. Cool on a baking tray before cutting into squares.

For extra pregnancy nutrition, add more fruit! 55gms or so of chopped apricots or a handful of goji berries works well and makes these tasty bars even tastier!
