Flapjacks are a tasty treat to have with coffee, to add to your lunchbox or to eat as a snack on the go. I created these simple flapjacks and added Forest Feast dried fruits to add some extra flavour and nutrition.
Forest Feast was founded in 1996 by the late Lorraine Hall. The company is filled with people passionate about creating healthy snacks for all to enjoy, whilst guaranteeing a nutritious intake of vitamins at the same time.
The Smart and Hearty range was created in response to consumer trends regarding health concerns about sugar intake. Each dried fruit product contains no added sugars including syrups or juices and have been independently checked and verified to meet the no added sugar specifications. It’s a healthier snacking alternative – especially in these winter months when we’re all struggling to keep the bikini bods we worked so hard for in the summer!
250g Gluten Free Porridge Oats
100g Coconut Sugar
1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
2 Tbsp Honey
Half a pack of Forest Feast Dried Figs
Half a pack of Forest Feast Dried Mango
Throw all the ingredients in a baking bowl and mix together well.
*Note: you will need to cut the dried fruit into smaller pieces for the best effect.
Once all ingredients are mixed together, place the mixture on a baking tray with at least a 2inch depth.
Place tray in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.
Once flapjack mixture looks golden brown, let it cool for around 30 minutes. When the flapjack has cooled down, slice into rectangles.
Enjoy as an after dinner snack, or a mid-morning break!
