    Oatie Bars With Nuts and Dates

    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 – they are high in potassium and contain plenty of fibre whilst brazil nuts are full of selenium – 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!

    Work out what you need when you work out

    Look good and feel great when you exercise – you (and your baby bump) deserve the best 🏃‍♀️

    Bircher Muesli recipe for healthy pregnancy diet

    Love oats, love this easy breakfast for pregnant women! This Bircher Muesli recipe makes a delicious start to the day

    Too hot for porridge? Don’t miss out on the long slow sustaining energy food value of oats. We’ve adapted the original Bircher Muesli recipe developed by Swiss physician Dr Bircher-Brenner with the addition of lots of extra nuts, seeds and fruit. It’s a great breakfast (or mid morning snack) as part of your healthy pregnancy diet and it’s so easy to ring the changes to include your favourite dried fruits and nuts.

    We like it best with apricots, walnuts and cranberries – apricots contain plenty of iron, folic acid, potassium and magnesium; walnuts are an excellent source of Omega-3 fats to help healthy brain development and cranberries are a good source of Vitamin C – all essential nutrients for pregnant women! Try dried figs or dates or add a handful of blueberries with the grated apple. Prepare it in the evening ready for breakfast the next day.


    For two portions:

    1 cup of oats
    1 cup of apple juice
    1 heaped tsp of flax seeds
    1 heaped tsp of mixed seeds (choose a mixed salad sprinkle)
    1 heaped tsp of sultanas
    1 heaped tsp of cranberries
    2-3 chopped dried apricots
    1 heaped tsp of chopped mixed nuts
    1 apple, unpeeled and grated


    Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, pour over the apple juice and leave to soak overnight. In the morning, grate the apple into the mixture and serve with a generous dollop of natural yogurt. If the mixture has soaked up all the juice and is a little dry, simply add more apple juice to taste.

    Start the day with good intentions!
