again been recommended to use rubbish oats over good quality one (or use a lower % of good to crap)
This was the last one I made, rather nice, though IIRC I doubled the recipe and added more almond extract
oh not exactly flapjack but bloody great all the same River Cottage Honey peanutbutter booster barsPosted 4 years agolw246Member
I’m not sure of the exact quantities as I’m normally guessing and going by how it looks but…
3 or 4 bananas
A load of Dates
Chopped/Crushed/Broken up walnuts
3 or 4 BIG spoons of peanut butter
a bit of olive oil (40ml ish)
Loads of Oats
Mash the bananas up. Add the Dates, raisins, walnuts.
Mix in the oats until the mixture looks quite dry
Heat the peanut butter and olive oil gently in a saucepan until runny and mixed together.
Add Peanut butter mixture to the oats and mix. It should now be dry, but hold together if you squash it.
Put in a try lined with baking paper and cook in the oven at 170ish for around 30-40mins
Also very tasty if you melt some chocolate and pour over the top.
Make sure you cut while warm 🙂Posted 4 years agoCragMember

Got this from an old Trail magazine from few years ago, bit of an effort gathering ingredients but results were good.

The healthiest flapjack ever?
“This flapjack has no added sugar!” says nutritionist Abby Harman. “And it contains key nutrients for energy production, detoxification, muscular support and hydration, all vital while exercising.” Try this recipe and tell us what you think.
3 organic apples
300ml apple juice
1tbsp ginger (grated)
2tsp ‘Seagreens’ from Waitrose or a pinch of quality sea salt
4 cups of porridge oats
100ml olive oil
100ml cup of nuts
100ml cup of pumpkin and flax seeds
200ml cup of dates
100ml cup of raisins
100ml cup of goji berries
1tsp blackstrap molasses
Baking tin, greaseproof paper, blender, pan, 2 bowls, 200ml cup
1 Preheat oven to 180 deg C.Posted 4 years ago
Chop apples, grate ginger and stew in large pan with 200ml apple juice and Seagreens or salt until apples are soft.
2 Blend nuts so some chunks are left. Stir in seeds and put to one side in bowl
3 Blend dates and raisins with 100ml apple juice – also put to one side in another bowl and stir in the goji berries
4 Blend apple and ginger stew to make puree. Spoon 1 tbsp of this into the chopped nuts. Pour the rest back to the large pan and stir in oats, cinnamon and olive oil.
5 Spoon half this mixture into greaseproof-paper-lined baking tin in a thin layer.
6 Spread the date, raisin, goji berry mix on top, leaving a little to add to the nuts.
7 Spoon the rest of the oat mixture on top, bit by bit, to make a ‘sandwich’.
8 Add a teaspoon of molasses to the nut, seed, puree, date mixture and mix until evenly sticky. Spread it over the oats.
9 Bake 20 minutes or until browned and firm. Allow to cool, cut into squares and enjoy!IHNMember
Ignore all the poncey flapjack frippery above. What you need is:
6oz golden syrup
A good teaspoon of dried ginger
If you like/must, bung a good handful of died fruit in.
Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together, stir in the rest, put in well buttered tray in the oven for about 40 mins.
Done.Posted 4 years agomikey-simmoSubscriber
4 serving spoons golden syrup
340g Demerara sugar
1/2 tin condensed milk
Melt butter in pan, add sugar and heat gently until sugar mostly dissolved but take care not to let it boil. Add golden syrup and condensed milk and stir well to mix then add oats. Don’t add so many oats that it becomes dry. Line large tin with baking paper and put mixture in to a depth of ~2-3 cm. bake at 180 deg C for about 15-20 mins until slightly brown around the edges. Don’t over bake or they will be too hard. The other thing you can do is to slice up some cooking apples thinly and microwave with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon then put half flapjack in tin, lay apple slices on top then cover with rest of flapjack mix.
This recipe makes a lot and they are seriously calorific but cut into small squares and pop in freezer then take one out as and when so that you don’t scoff the lot in one go. Use bits of grease proof paper to separate layers of flapjack pieces in the tub so they come out individually rather than one lump!Posted 4 years ago
