There are loads of flapjack recipes out there and my other half (www.dominic.ie) is very fond of the raw variety. I prefer to bake them, finding the texture nicer. Which ever you prefer (mine please!) they are a great filler if you have missed lunch, a great energy boosting snack and full of great ingredients. It goes without saying that these are a mile away from the packaged variety usually full of hydrogenated fats and damm all else yet labelled healthy due to the oat content. Try making these instead and I swear you will never have to hear the rustle of a flapjack package again!
70gr soft pitted prunes
40gr soft dried cranberries
50gr mix of sunflower pumpkin and chia seeds
35gr almond flour
100gr unsalted butter
25gr coconut palm sugar
60ml honey and 2 tbsp water
Blend the nuts prunes cranberries and seeds until they resemble soft crumbs.
Tip into a bowl And add the oats and almond flour and stir well to combine.
Melt the butter and add the water , coconut palm sugar and honey, briefly bring to the boil and stir to combine
Tip into the mixture and stir to combine
Tip into a standard flat baking tray and press down well with a spoon
Bake 160C for about 25 minutes
Remove from the oven and while it is cooling, press another tin down firmly on the mix to ensure it sets.
When cool, melt 150gr of good quality chocolate and pour over the flapjacks and when set cut into bars-I usually get about 12-15 from this tin……Yummy

This is exactly what i’ve been looking for! Where abouts in Dublin is the best place to buy the coconut palm sugar?
Hi, sorry if this a dup reply, think I pressed send early. They have it in health stores, dundrum and stillorgan where I have got it, not sure about others. Asia market had it last time I was in town. Only downside of this great product is the cost, 7€ per pack… I keep my baking to the minimum as a result!
Thanks for the reply Grainne. Is that the health store upstairs in Dundrum shopping centre?
Yes, that’s the one..
Hiiii.. love your recipes ❤..could you tell me if I can use oat flour or ground almonds instead of almond flour? And if I can replace honey with maple syrup? And final question.. sorry.. but is coconut blossom sugar same as coconut palm sugar?.. I did look it up but I’m now blinded by science!!! Thank u
Hi Tara, sorry to be so late in replying! Feel free to text me on 0872379372 next time! Coconut blossom sugar is the same! If I don’t have it, I sub in light brown sugar.
And ground almond meal is virtually the same as almond flour so they are fine to sub. Oat flour will work too but remember that it will be a little dryer than the almond so you might need to up the liquid a tiny bit. Honey can be substituted with maple just a slightly different taste! Sorry for the reply in 2 bits!
