Healthy Banana Flapjacks

Healthy Banana Flapjacks

Flapjacks occupy a strange and confused culinary corner. By virtue of their many oats, like oatcakes or porridge, flapjacks are considered healthy. This is, by and large, a lie.

Flapjack recipes are full of devilish ingredients like whole blocks of butter and entire sacks of refined sugar. My recipe for Healthy Banana Flapjacks buck this trend. They contain a greatly reduced amount of butter and absolutely no artificially refined sugar. The flapjacks certainly benefit from it.

Chocolate and Hazelnut Flapjacks

Chocolate and Hazelnut Flapjack recipe

The exploration of new food combinations is all well and good, but finding new applications for old pairings can be equally exciting – after all, they are old and well-used for a reason. As I expect we all know, it is eminently possible to unite chocolate and hazelnuts to devastating effect and this flapjack recipe, in my opinion, certainly does so, taking their relationship to stratospheric levels. However, be warned, no quarter is given to healthy eating here – these are full-fat and flavourful. I direct those of you looking for something a little easier on the waistline to this recipe for chewy granola bars.
