Healthy Carrot Cake Cereal Bars

It’s the weekend. Finally I feel like I’ve found some time and space in life to catch up with myself a little. I’ve had the steam cleaner out, which I have to share with Miss K, cleaning fanatic. I’ve pretty much put all the washing away (MIRACLE) and due to my Slow Cooker Experiment dinner is cooking, the baby napping. SO…it was time to get out Vlog on and try a new recipe out 🙂 

Who doesn’t love a bit of carrot cake? Combine that with a cereal bar love in our house and these have instantly become a winner. These came about at Miss K’s fav veggie is carrot and she loves the bought cereal bars (which mummy meanly rarely buys)…. so I decided it was time to play around with making a savoury feel cereal bar for her. They are surprisingly good.

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.
