AW promotion: Paul Freary talks you through how to make this ideal post-training snack

Looking for a post-training snack idea? Here AW‘s Paul Freary talks you through how to make flapjacks with US Montmorency Tart Cherries.

You’ll need:
• 350g oats
• 200g brown sugar
• 4 table spoons golden syrup
• 250g unsalted butter
• 150g US Montmorency Tart Cherries

There are more than 50 studies supporting the potential health benefits of Montmorency tart cherries – from inflammation and exercise recovery, to sleep. Turns out, the tart taste is an indication of the amount of anthocyanins inside. These flavonoid compounds are behind the sourness, intense red colour and potential health-promoting properties, like reducing muscle soreness after exercise, easing arthritis pain and enhancing heart health. They may even help you sleep better at night because they contain melatonin, a natural hormone that regulates our sleep cycle.
