A lovely healthy, guilt free alternative to a flapjack. Tastes a bit like a banana bread but has all the goodness of the oats you’d find in a flapjack. They make a great breakfast alternative and also a great snack for the mid afternoon energy slump. Wheat and dairy too.
ingredients – Makes 16
2 mashed bananas – the riper the better as easier to mash and sweeter
2 cups oats
1 tbsp dessicated coconut
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
6/7 apricots chopped
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp maple syrup – add 1 tbsp more if you like them sweeter
200ml oat milk
Heat oven to 140
Mash the bananas in a large bowl.
Add the oats and other dry ingredients to the bananas, stir and combine.
Add the peanut butter along with the maple syrup, give it a good mix now.
Finally, add the oat milk till you have a thick consistency.
Grease a small baking tray with coconut oil and transfer the mix to the baking tray. Press the mixture down very firmly with the back of your hand, or the bottom of a clean mug.
Cook for about 25 – 30 minutes till the edges have started to turn golden brown and the mixture is quite springy to the touch. Cook for few more minutes if you feel it needs longer.
