Health on a Plate

…because what you put on your plate matters

Healthy vegan flapjacks – sugar and fat free

These healthy flapjacks are very popular snacks with both kids and grown ups. They’re great for carrying in your bag for when you get the munchies! And what’s more, they are incredibly easy to make.

I often use cups when I cook with my kids as it means they can do the measuring for themselves. Cheap different coloured, plastic cups are available at most supermarkets.

Add 1 cup chopped dates to 2 cups of freshly boiled water and leave to stand for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile mix the dry ingredients in a bowl – 2 cups oats, 1/2 cup oat bran and 2 cups of mixed dried fruit and nuts/seeds (my personal favourite is chopped prunes and apricots with coarsely ground almonds). Simply add the water and date mix and stir. You can add a teaspoon of honey, stevia or a small mashed banana if you want to make your flapjacks sweeter.

Press into a lined baking tray and bake at Gas Mark 4, 180°C, 350°F, until the flapjack starts to turn golden brown (approx 20 minutes.) Enjoy experimenting!
