Quick & Healthy Flapjack Recipe


I've always avoided flapjacks as often they're perceived as a healthy snack but normally contain a ridiculous amount of refined sugar and butter. I don't know about anyone else but if I'm going to put that much crap into my body I'd rather it be in the form of a chocolate brownie. These flapjacks contain all wholesome ingredients, with no refined sugar and they're vegan friendly. They taste delicious and are so simple to make. All of the ingredients can be found in most supermarkets too so you haven't got to search any health stores looking for some weird over priced superfood!


What you'll need to make 12:

2 cups of oats (use gluten free if you wish)
2 ripe bananas
2 tbsp agave nectar
1/2 cup of (melted) coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 raisons
1/4 dried cranberries
1/4 sliced almonds

How to make them: 

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees. Whilst you melt your coconut oil, mash up your ripe bananas with a fork, then add in your melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and agave nectar. In a separate bowl add all the dry ingredients together, including the dried fruit and nuts. Once you've done that, add in the wet ingredients and stir it well. Line a square baking tray with baking paper and pop the mixture into the tray evenly and then pop in the oven to cook for 40-45 minutes, depending on how golden and crisp you want them. Leave it aside to cool for 20 minutes or so and then cup 'em up and enjoy. A perfect little healthy snack to have with a cuppa!

  2. I look baking and have made cakes, biscuits, pies and breads, but not tried flapjacks. The recipe sounds fairly easy so I might give it a try! x
