For six hours a week now I have only one child in the house as the two-year-old has started preschool. Those hours fly by, and I can never get as much done as I want to but I try make time to sit down have a cup of tea or coffee and something nice to eat. These flapjacks were perfect for the first day my two-year-old started school. I’d already made them so I could just grab them while holding a baby on the hip, make a coffee sit down, breastfeed, and enjoy. Bliss.
They are also ideal for the kids breakfasts, lunchbox or as an afternoon snack. They are super healthy and are packed with fruit and slow releasing porridge outs to keep tummys full for longer. They were really easy to make and I had most of the ingredients in the cupboard already.
The recipe is from Women’s Health magazines. Is how I made it.
Two apples, chopped
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey or a go away Siri
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
150 g of porridge oats
45 g dried fruit for example apricots chopped or I used raisins
40 g seeds or nuts chopped
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 190°C. Add apples to a food processor and pulse until mushy.
- Mixed together the oil, honey or maple syrup and vanilla in a pan over medium heat for adding the most apples and mixing well.
- In a bowl, mix together the oats fruit seeds and nuts, salt and cinnamon before I didn’t do the pan and staring.
- Press the mixture into a lined baking tin and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until nice and golden.
- Allow to cool then cut into bars or square shapes. Store in the fridge or freezer and enjoy!
