Flapjack recipe

Anyone got one that is toddler friendly - and yummy for me too?!

I want to make Charotte some healthy(ish) snacks instead of giving her just biccies or Organix snacks as so expensive to keep buying. Plus then I know exactly what's gone into them.

All recipes much appreciated (even if not for flapjacks).




  • Gluten Free Brownies

    These gooey, chewy gluten free brownies are so good that you will love them whether you have a gluten allergy or not. You can substitute half of the white chocolate for roughly chopped pecans. You can substitute ordinary flour for the gluten free flour if there is no gluten allergy.

    200 g (7 oz) plain chocolate, cut into chunks
    200 g (7 oz) butter, cut into 1 cm (1/2 in) chunks
    3 large eggs
    175 g (6 oz) light muscovado sugar
    110 g (4 oz) gluten-free plain flour
    3 tbsp cocoa powder
    2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
    a pinch of salt
    150 g (5 oz) white chocolate, chopped
    icing sugar, for dusting (optional)

    Pre-heat the oven to 190????C/375????F/Gas 5. Put the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted. Alternatively, put the chocolate and butter into a suitable bowl, microwave for 1 minute, stir then microwave in 10-second blasts until melted. Allow to cool slightly.

    Using an electric mixer, whisk the eggs and sugar together until pale and frothy. Stir in the chocolate and then sift and fold in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and a large pinch of salt. Fold in the white-chocolate chunks.

    Line a 28 cm x 20 cm (14 in x 8 in) cake tin with baking parchment, with the parchment coming up the sides of the tin. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a crust has formed but there is some give underneath when pressed. Do not overbake. Remove from the oven and allow to cool thoroughly in the tin. Don't worry, it will sink and crack a little.

    Remove from the tin and cut into squares before serving. You can dust with icing sugar if you wish.

  • Flapjack Recipe

    They last for days, they are cheap to make and they are good for you. What could be better than a great flapjack for that lunchtime snack!

    Butter - 40g
    Margarine - 60g
    Oats - 250g
    Salt - pinch
    Banana - 1
    Honey - 3tbsp
    chocolate (optional)

    Making Method1. Melt the butter and the Margarine in a deep saucepan over a very low heat
    2. add the brown sugar and 3 tablespoons of honey and mix well until you have a liquid substance.
    3. Mix in the oats, if you find it easier add them in gradually stirring and covering the oats with the mixture
    4. add a pinch of salt.
    5. Mash the banana into a liquid pulp and mix into the oats (this will take a good few minutes to ensure that the banana is fully mixed in).
    6. Get a knife and spread the oats evenly over a baking tray.
    7. Place the baking tray onto the middle shelf in a preheated oven (gas mark 5, 220 C) and bake for 15 minutes, checking the progress regularly. Take out when the mixture starts turning a darker colour.
    8. Stand for a minute or two, cut the flapjack into as many pieces as you wish
    9. You may find it best to leave the flapjack for a few hours to cool down although you can eat them striaight away.

    Tip. To make the flapjacks that little bit more special, drizzle melted chocolate over the top of them!
