I am passionate about creating an appetizing and at the same time nutritious food recipes. This flapjack is definitely a right balance – so yummy and packed with lots of goodies. This is one of my top healthy snacks.
Oats are slow-releasing food – I find that eating those an hour or so before exercise provide energy and do not cause a heavy feeling in your stomach while keeping blood sugar levels steady through a workout. The nutritional benefits of the oats cannot be underestimated as they are packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre and help to lower high blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
For my delicious flapjack I use about 1/2 cup porridge oats, 1 heaped tbsp of my homemade applesauce (with no added sugar!), 1 tbsp butter (or oil if dairy free), 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp chopped walnuts (you can use any other nuts of course). And that’s it!
Bake for 30-35 mins then cool on a wired rack and cut into 4 squares. Keep them in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
