Plum and Ginger Flapjack

Flapjack. Literally it makes my world a happier place. However I’ve had a bit of a problem of late. The children are eating the bananas too fast and I just don’t have enough that are going bad to be able to make my signature banana and sultana flapjack. So with a glut of plums in the freezer and the plum tree back in blossom again I’ve created a new favourite. This one is reminiscent of plum and ginger crumble. What’s not to love?

I love it because 1. It has ginger in. 2 It isn’t too sweet 3. It takes 10 minutes to knock up and 4. It is flapjack. Miss K loves it’s because is is pink. The J-boy loves it because it is food.

I can happily feed this to my children knowing it is packed with wholegrains and fruit.

  1. Looks like a great recipe. Eldest and I have just been having a go. It’s in the oven now and smells delicious. Judging by the way she licked the bowl, spoon and hands, it also tastes delicious! We used 2tbsp of golden syrup as I don’t have any sukrin gold and the youngest can’t have honey yet. Can I check though…. You say 2tsp of sukrin gold. A quick google search told me it is used 1:1. Did you mean 2tbsp or have you found it to be too sweet in a 1:1 substitution?

      1. Loved them! Biggest small person has demanded more so there’s more in the oven now. It’s a real pity our plum tree has performed so poorly this year. I’m trying 1tbsp of syrup this time.
        Good to know about the sukrin gold, thanks. If I ever come across any I’ll have to give it a go.
        I’m assuming you buy it online, not locally in Southampton…

        1. I think it has been a poor year for plums as our tree has done badly too and usually I am overwhelmed with plums! The Sukrin was sent to me to try out but you can buy it online.
