Healthier Flapjack

May 10, 2014

I made these as a gluten free option for coffee and cake after church. Sadly I found that there was some gluten in the muesli after I’d made them, so I had to find an alternative option. That said, they went down well as a more breakfast-y option after our morning service.

Flapjack for breakfast

I first saw these over at Gourmet Mum. The only tweak I’ve made is using muesli (my favourite –  Extremely Exotic Harvest Morn from Aldi) rather than oats and raisins. I love the crunch that the sunflower and pumpkin seeds add what is otherwise quite a soft slice compared to normal flapjack. The upside to the difference is of course that they are much healthier!

Healthier Flapjack

3 bananas – either mashed really ripe ones or ones that your frozen and then defrosted in the microwave
50g melted butter
50g / 2 tablespoons honey  – I used forest honey which has a lovely pine-y flavour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
320g muesli (use gluten free if needed)

Here’s Gourmet Mum’s instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / gas mark 6. Grease a rectangular baking tray roughly 25 x 30cm in size (or whatever you have, a round cake tin one will do).
  2. Mix all the ingredients together well in a large bowl. Pour into the baking tray and use the back of a wet tablespoon to press the banana flapjack mixture down evenly across the tray.
  3. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown but not dark. Leave to cool in the tray then remove and cut into 12 squares with a sharp knife.

    Awesome recipe – it’s so easy to substitute in gluten free oats!
