Healthier Flapjacks

Here’s a nice recipe for Healthier Flapjacks which we use from time to time.

 

They are delicious and filling and lovely to have on hand as a treat. They contain protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats but keep in mind that they are sweetened with honey and contain dates so they do contain natural sugars! It might be a healthier option but they are still a treat.

Wet Ingredients:

200g / 1 cup Medjool dates, or pre-soaked regular dates
1 cup ground almonds
2 cups oats
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly broken
Handful of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins
½ teaspoon sea salt flakes
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Dry Ingredients:

125ml / 1/2 cup honey

185ml / 3/4 cup melted extra virgin coconut oil

 

Method:

Preheat your oven to 170 Celsius /150 fan-assisted. Chop the dates and combine with the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Using a saucepan, gently melt the coconut oil with honey( or your choice of natural sweetener) for 2 minutes.

Create a hole in the centre of your dry ingredients and add the sweetened coconut oil to the party. Mix until all the ingredients are glistening. Now you can scrape the flapjack mixture into a parchment-lined tin no bigger than a magazine page. Press down firmly with your fingers.

Bake for 30 minutes until lightly golden. Remove the tray from the oven. Carefully press down with your fingers once more, using a clean tea towel. Resist cutting until they have chilled and solidified in the fridge for a few hours. They’ll last for 2 weeks if stored in the fridge.

Enjoy.
