Blueberry Snack Bar (GF LF LowFODMAP LowGI)

Great take-anywhere fruity biscuit bars.  The recipe has virtually no sweetness, so if you are not affected by hypoglycaemia you might want to add a tablespoon of caster sugar and add apple juice instead of water.  If you can tolerate lactose you could also add whey powder to make them more protein-rich.  I take mine hiking and surfing, they are great before/ after exercise bars.  Makes 8

200g Blueberries (I use frozen berries)
90g   Sainsbury Buckwheat and Rice Flakes (or oats if you can tolerate)
50g milled flax seed
50g Buckwheat flour
25g sesame and/ or linseeds
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

Mix the fruit and the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  In another bowl, whisk the egg whites, water and vanilla together until lightly foamy.  Add the foam to the dry ingredients and combine into a moist but crumbly mixture.  Cook for 40 minutes in the oven at 180c, Gas Mark 4.
