Banana Flapjacks


I haven’t made flapjacks for ages. But now we’re in our new house and I’m on a mission to fill the larder/freezer with healthy, tempting home cooked goodies, and flapjacks have to be one of the best bars to have hanging around for when an energy boost is needed in a hurry.

This flapjack variation packs a surprisingly ‘big’ banana flavour and the toffee-like brown sugar combines with it for a wonderful banoffee like finish. I had thought that by sneaking in one banana my girls wouldn’t notice, but the flavour shone through so much they immediately said ‘are they banana?’ No bad thing in my book!

Banana Flapjacks (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, soya-free, sesame-free, maybe gluten-free [depending on oats used], vegetarian and vegan)
