PB & Honey Flapjack Recipe

This is my go to recipe in the week, especially now I’m on maternity leave, as being at home most of the day can make it oh so easy to rummage through the cupboards to see what snacks I can find! Plus it keeps Rich happy if (more like when) I’m slacking in the wifey department and haven’t got anything in for breakfast, as they’re great to grab and eat on the go. They’re so easy to make and they’re full of fibre and natural ingredients, unlike standard flapjack recipes which tend to be crammed with sugar. I adapted this recipe from Deliciously Ella’s book.

 

Ingredients (makes 10 flapjacks)

3 overripe bananas

300g porridge oats

6 tbsp peanut butter (we like Whole Earth Smooth Peanut Butter)

6 tbsp honey

2 tbsp coconut oil (i.e. Lucy Bee Extra Virgin Coconut Oil)

100g raisins

50g chia seeds (they now have a whole foods section at Aldi!)

 

Method

Pre heat the oven to 180C (or 170C for fan assisted)

Line a rectangular baking tray with parchment paper (or use a little extra cocunut oil to grease if you prefer)

Measure out your porridge oats, raisins and chia seeds and add them into a large mixing bowl – set aside for now

Mash the bananas with a fork and add them into a saucepan with the coconut oil, honey and peanut butter

Turn the pan to a low heat and keep stirring as the ingredients form a smooth paste (this should only take a few minutes)

Pour the heated paste into the mixing bowl bit by bit, ensuring all the oats are covered

Transfer the flapjack mix into the baking tray and spread evenly, pressing down with a spatula

Pop it on the middle shelf of the oven for 15 – 20 minutes, until the top starts to brown

 

There you have it – guilt free snacks to enjoy for the whole week!
