  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp porridge oats

  1. Tip all the ingredients except the almonds into a food processor and pulse until you have a rubbly looking mixture.

  2. Line a tray with baking parchment and mould the mixture into fingers, then lay them on the tray. Press an almond ‘fingernail’ into the end of each finger and place in the fridge to harden for at least 1 hr. Serve poking out of a bowl.
