    Makes 20 wheels


    Give these healthy treats an even bigger nutrient boost by adding seeds, dried fruit or shredded coconut. These wheels freeze brilliantly. Double the recipe and store them for after-sport snacks.

    1 medium free-range egg 
    1/2 cup (125 ml) sunflower oil
    3/4 tsp (4 ml) vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups (350 ml) rolled organic oats
    1/2 cup (125 ml) cannellini beans, drained, rinsed 
    thoroughly and mashed
    2 cups (500 ml) quick cooking organic oats
    2 Tbsp (45 ml) sultanas, heaped
    3/4 cup (180 ml) brown rice crisp cereal
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) cinnamon
    3/4 cup (180 ml) coconut sugar
    2 Tbsp (45 ml) dark chocolate chips, heaped

    Preheat oven to 300 F (150 C).

    Whisk together all wet ingredients in one bowl, dry ingredients in another. Combine both. Use a 2 to 3 in (5 to 7.5 cm) round biscuit cutter as a mould and press about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of mixture into wheels about 1 in (2.5 cm) thick.

    Line baking tray with non-stick paper, and bake wheels for about 30 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden.

    Cool on rack and then Frisbee toss them into your kids’ mouths. (Kidding. Just serve normally.)

    Ever thought about making burgers as an appetizer or as a potluck meal for friends and family? Try making your favourite burger into bite-sized portions. They might be small in size, but they won’t be small in flavour. These burgers also pair well with a Greek salad for a delicious mid-week lunch or dinner. Fresh is best Squeeze fresh lemon on patties while cooking to give them the fresh zing of citrus.
