We’ve been back in the test kitchen using low GI ingredients, creating a delicious sweet potato, oat & California Prune traybake.
California Prunes provide a lot of health benefits- including having a low GI, which means energy is released slowly, keeping you fuller for longer, and helping to control your blood sugar levels. #Caprunes Visit www.californiaprunes.co.uk for more delicious recipes!
260g sweet potato
5 medium eggs
60g soft brown sugar
20g mixed seeds
300g California Prunes (chopped)
Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for 45 minutes or until soft in the middle. When cooked, remove from the oven and carefully cut open to allow the steam out.
When the potatoes are cool, use a spoon to scoop the orange centres into a bowl and mash.
Add the eggs and sugar. Whisk until smooth and there are no lumps of sweet potato.
Add the oats, seeds, California Prunes and walnuts, then stir together.
Transfer the mixture into a 20cm square baking tin and bake for 25-30 minutes at 170°C.
When the bake has cooled cut into 12 portions.
