Mango and Date Flapjacks (gluten and wheat free)

Now it’s been a couple of weeks since we made flapjacks due to sickness in the household. My oh my, how I’ve missed you flapjack! I’ve found myself looking at the flapjack tin wishing it was full. So today was the day. Myself and the toddler went flapjack-tastic, making our usual banana and sultana favourite and also coming up with this beauty.

If you like a sweeter flapjack without the extra sugar then this is the one for you. The mango gives it that sweet lift. The linseeds and sesame seeds make it extra nutritious with omega 3’s, iron, zinc and calcium.

Mango and Apricot Raw Nut bars.

I’ve been meaning to play around with making these for absolutely ages. It’s been on of those things on my very long list of things to make. However babies and toddlers seem to take over slightly 😉 Today has been a fairly relaxed day and suddenly in the middle of te toddler finishing her tea and the baby getting ready for a bath I suddenly found that urge to make these. As I fired up the food processor my husband literally came out with “What on earth are you doing” – translated as “Its time to get these kids into bed so we can sit down with a glass of something yummy”. Fortunately these babies literally took minutes to make so I can enjoy one with my glass of chilled white wine. YES.

This is a recipe I’ll be playing around with over the coming weeks for sure. Let me know if you come up with any good combinations.
