Bounty flapjacks

Well , doesn’t it truly feel like we’ve been in January for about 3 months so far? What is it about the post Christmas/New Year period where everything seems to slow down and weeks drag on forever? It also means that we’re well back into the routine of packed lunches and working lunches, so I…

Tropical flapjacks

Sunny days call for not just food for outdoors but also bright tropical flavours, hence the inspiration for these deliciously lush oaty bars. Flapjacks are one of the best packable foods- they’re sweet and delicious and stand up to be lugged about in a hot backpack, and even in the worse case scenario of them…

Raspberry and Lemon Flapjacks

You simply can’t beat a flapjack for energy giving deliciousness but sometimes you want more than just sweet syrupy oats. I’m very fond of coconut flapjacks, but the girls aren’t so keen, so I’m constantly trying to develop new, exciting flavours to enhance such a simple staple. This version uses freeze dried raspberries and lemon…

Cinnamon Flapjacks

  Everyone loves a flapjack – they have such a worthy image which makes them seem acceptable even to those avoiding sweet treats. I’ve no idea why! If you’ve ever made flapjacks, or even seen a recipe you know just how much sugar and syrup goes into these little beauties. I guess it must be…

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…

Ginger Flapjacks

I needed a hearty, packable snack that would give a boost of energy but also warmth during this bitterly cold weather. Flapjacks seem to be the ultimate energy giver and combining them with the natural warmth of ginger keeps the chill at bay. Well, that’s the theory. The crystalized ginger gives bursts of spice while…

Cocoa and Coconut Flapjacks

My excitement at getting to eat different shop bought lunches whilst at work has quickly faded. I’ve exhausted most nearby options and frankly it’s rather expensive. Homemade lunches are proving to be more interesting and much more satisfying. Sandwich shops always sell a version of a flapjack, but I guarantee none will be as delicious…

Super-duper Gooey Chocolate flapjacks

Little S wanted to take in some biscuits/cakes that her lovely teacher could enjoy too (Mrs L doesn’t eat gluten and I’m not very practiced at gluten-free cake making), so I reverted back to one of my all time favourite recipes, super-duper amazingly gooey flapjacks and made a few tweaks here and there. I only…

Super-duper Amazingly Gooey Flapjacks

Flapjacks are a great standby for the dairy/egg/nut allergic household. When other people can produce some shop bought cereal bar for their kids, I was always lacking in options. There came a time when yet another biscuit, fruit bar or rice cake just didn’t hit the spot. So for a couple of years I made a…
