Healthy Cherry Bakewells


This recipe came about because one of my best friends absolutely loves them and so it took it upon myself to create a version that is guilt free but equally delicious and importantly, no compromise in taste! They are so easy to make and so quick, you will definitely never look back..

Recipe

Base:

  • 1.5 cups blended oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp honey

    Middle
  • Cherry jam
    OR if you want to make your own, mix up the below - I will be doing a separate post on this soon!
  • 2 cups frozen pitted cherries, thawed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp chia seed

    Top
  • 2 tbsp quark
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence 
  • or 
  • @phdwomanuk vanilla exercise support if you want to add a touch of protein in there 
  • Cherries 

First, blend up the 'base' into a dough mixture and press into/around the side cupcake cases to make a base  - I use the reusable rubber ones. Add in a little jam, not too much as they will overflow! Bake these for around 10 minutes on 180 degrees, they should start to brown and form a proper crust.

Next, once these are cooked allow to cool fully. While this is going on, whiz up the topped and pop into the freezer for 10-15 minutes so it sets a little (always taste test and lick the spoon.. essential part!). Once ready, and the base is cool pop on top using a spoon and of course a cherry to finish.

I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do, again make sure you tag me in any recipes you try! Absolutely love hearing and seeing everyone sharing my passion for food.
