Healthy flapjacks

Inspired by Dale Pinnock “The Medicinal Chef”, these flapjacks are not only healthy but they also taste delicious. They are low sugar so don’t expect a high sugar hit, but they are delicious as they are and I would encourage you to try them. They make you realise how tasty doesn’t have to be sugary.

Remember a healthy eating plan and fat loss only works when you plan your snacks. These make 12. So are good for elevenses to keep you going until lunch for every day in the week and as they take moments to make they are worth investing in.

How to do it:

1tbsp coconut oil

1tbsp peanut butter, wholenut, no added sugar. I use Aldi who’s nut butters are also palm oil free.

1 tbsp almond butter (see above)

1tbsp honey

Melt this altogether in a saucepan

Then add

3 squashed bananas (mush them in their skins)

280g oats (I used small oats as they stick better than jumbo oats)

2 tbsp milled linseed mix (aldi or lidl)

Stir it altogether

Tip into a tin and pop into preheated 180°C oven for 15-20 mins

I lined the bottom of the tray and up two sides with baking paper then pulled the flapjack out and popped into a cooling rack to cool when cooked.

Enjoy. Remember to leave some for tomorrow 😉

    Having made these a couple of times, I can add – make sure your bananas are not too small as thry are the glue and too few bananas results in a overly dry mix. Add an extra if it is too dry.
    Also thos time I added 3 tbsp cacao powder to see if they make nice chocolate flapjacks… I’ll keep you informed!

    I just made these, with crunchy peanut butter and a seed mix instead of the milled linseed as I didn’t have it, still seemed to come together fine! They do taste healthier than your average flapjack but are sweet enough as they are, very banana-y!

      Yay! So pleased you like them. Eat them reasonably quickly as mine from last weekend had gone mouldy by this weekend… Thanks for sharing!
