Dairy Free, Free From Refined Sugar Easter Fruit Oaty Snack - An Alternative #FreeFromEaster with Aldi

Recently I have been experimenting more and more with free from baking so when Aldi challenged me to create an alternative Easter bake I jumped at the chance. At the end of the week the children break up for the Easter holidays and we all know how important it is to keep them busy. This weeks Aldi recipe is perfect to make with the children and I even had a little helper when I made these.

These lovely little fruit oaty snacks are a bit like a soft flapjack that can be cut into a range of shapes and decorated as you wish. They are dairy free and free from refined sugar. We added fruit and honey to give them a natural sweetness. Aldi have got lots of delicious Easter recipes, including some free from treats, in their Easter section. But for now let me and my little helper show and tell you what we did...
Fruit Oaty Snacks


200g porridge oats (either regular or gluten free)
50g ground almonds
1 lg ripe banana (or 2 small bananas)
150g frozen fruit
120mls unsweetened almond milk
1 egg
1 heaped dessert spoon honey


Pre heat the oven to 190C

1 - Place the oats, ground almonds, cranberries and raisin mix, frozen fruit, mashed up banana, almond milk, egg and honey into a large mixing bowl

2 - Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly

3 - Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper

4 - Spoon the mixture onto the baking tray and spread out

5 - Place in the oven and bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until thoroughly baked

6 - Once baked thoroughly remove from the oven and while still warm either cut into squares or using biscuit cutters cut into shapes and leave to cool

If you use a biscuit cutter to make shapes, keep the delicious leftover pieces and keep in an airtight container as they make a lovely snack to nibble at! These oaty snacks are so easy to make and a great way to get the kids in the kitchen this Easter. Let my little helper and I show you how easy they are...
