Hello you lovely lot! Flapjack is a food often considered as healthy but most of the time it contains ridiculous amounts of butter and sugar. Even the healthier versions available to purchase from health shops and online shops can be too heavy if they are made with so called yogurt or chocolate toppings, heavy loaded with nuts and/or artificial “low calorie” sweeteners.
My simple and clean flapjack recipe contains only 2 tablespoons of rice syrup for the entire batch and no refined sugar. This homemade version take less than 5 minutes to whip up and I guarantee you will have most of the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard. It lasts for up to 5 days and makes a perfect snack on the go, or with a nice cuppa! Try this recipe out and experiment with your own healthy ingredients to put your own twist on your flapjack.
- 2 cups oats
- 2 very ripe bananas
- ½ cup melted coconut oil (I used Coconut Merchant coconut oil)
- 2 tbsp rice syrup or raw honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup raisins
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees.
- Grease your baking square dish with a bit of coconut oil and set aside.
- In a small bowl mash the bananas with melted coconut oil, rice syrup and vanilla extract.
- In a large bowl mix the oats, cinnamon, raisins and almonds.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to blend.
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for around 40 minutes or until the top is lightly brown.
