My cravings for carbs have really gone up this month. I think with training in full swing my body is needing more energy and substance which I’m far from complaining about because it means I get to enjoy tasty guilt-free treats like these Coconut & Goji Berry flapjacks!
Flapjacks, Lemon meringue pie and Banoffie Pie were my signature desserts as a kid – I used to sell them to my parent’s friends at dinner parties and my elder sister used to come downstairs and demand (bossiness runs through the family) I make her a tray of golden honey flapjacks. To be honest I think they had 3 ingredients – honey, sugar, and oats … so not the most nutritious snack but hey super easy to do!
The good news I’ve kept the utter simplicity in this recipe but turned these flapjacks into a superfood haven, full of fruity, chewy textures that make them rather addictive! I actually had to send Jack in with some to work because the large flapjack squares were disappearing pretty fast! They’re also loaded with 4 different types of nuts and seeds so are a great energy booster and will nourish the body with healthy fats and protein.
To be honest, having healthy home-made treats in the fridge is like nothing else. That may sound like a small exaggeration but when you need a pick-me-up or just fancy something gooey, sweet and delicious … being able to take something from the fridge that is healthy, guilt-free and nutritious is just perfect. All you need is 10 minutes at the weekend to put all the ingredients together in a bowl and then leave them to bake filling the kitchen with real mouth-watering, homely baked smells! You can also cut the healthy flapjacks up into smaller bites for kids or on-the-go car snacks. Easy as pie. Enjoy!
Look simple & nutritious .. will try in place of my usual breakfast bar recipe..
Give them a go, I’m sure you’ll love them!
