Apricot and Yoghurt Healthy Flapjack Bars

Flapjacks. There is no getting around the fact that I LOVE them. I’m not talking the treacle, syrup, butter version – that’s a bit too much for my tummy and my palate. The type I like is the not too sweet, fruity, oaty, chewy type. So I am constantly on the look out for new ways to reinvent my flapjacks. I’ve been playing around using yoghurt in a few muffin recipes, which led to my wondering what it would be like in a flapjack. It turns out that it’s pretty amazing, leading to a moist, delicious flapjack that takes no time to make and no time to eat if you aren’t careful!

 The bonus with this is there is no added fat or sugar. WIN WIN.

    Hi, thanks for sharing your fabulous recipes with us, I am having a to refrain from trying all of them in one day! So right now I have these apricot and yogurt bars baking away, but I’m unsure as to when they’re done, I’ve adapted the standard clean knife rule but after 30 minutes baking its still not clean

      Hi Sian, thankyou for your lovely comment 🙂 due to the sticky nature of the apricots I’m not sure a knife will come out clean, the bars will harden up more as they cool down. 20-30 minutes cooking should be about right, mine were firm to the touch.

    Very delicous!
    A healthy snack that tastes a little bit naughty… it embodies everything oaty and fruity!

    I would recommend anyone to try it.

    Picture on my twitter. Yummy! x
