Delicious, Date & Walnut Flapjacks

A healthy, tasty & nutritious snack for every type!  Enjoy!

 The combination of walnuts, dates, sesame seeds, eggs, molasses and oats is nourishing to most aspects of our system:  the yin, yang, blood and Qi.  Its moistening action is partially moderated by the drying and warming action of the spices.  Because of its richness, too much will be dampening.  This is a warming energy tonic that will support the whole system.

 Ingredients:

6 ounces walnuts

8 ounces dates

A little hot water

1 handful sesame seeds

1 cup sunflower oil

2 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons molasses

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

20 ounces oatflakes

 

Crush the walnuts and chop the dates finely.  Add a small amount of hot water to the dates, leave for a few minutes them mash until the dates dissolve a little.  Add the molasses, crushed walnuts, sesame seeds, oil, spies and eggs.  Stir well. Gradually add the oats until the mixture is thick and moist.  Push it into a shallow baking tray and bake at 400%F/Gas Mark 6 for about half an hour.  Cut when still warm.

Yoga & Digestion

Yoga encourages peristalsis, which moves waste and toxins through the colon.  It may favour the proliferation of healthy bacteria and also develops the abdominal muscles – all of which contribute to a healthier gut.  Pranayama can help oxygenate the entire body, including the digestive tract.
