No-added sugar flapjacks

by Mother & Baby |

Serves

8-16

Ingredients

  • 150g rolled oats

  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut

  • 50g coconut oil (melted for a few seconds in the microwave)

  • 2 bananas

  • 3 dates

  • 4 tbsp orange juice or apple juice

These quick, easy-to-make flapjacks have no refined sugar added to them. Instead, they are sweetened with fruit. They are perfect for baby-led weaning and to give to hungry toddlers.

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F/ gas mark 4. Line a baking dish (8in x 8in) with some parchment paper.

  • Blitz the oats in a food processor for a few seconds to break them down a bit. Transfer the oats into a large bowl and mix in the desiccated coconut.

  • In a blender, blitz the melted coconut oil, bananas, dates and fruit juice until it forms a sticky paste. Pour this on the oat mixture and stir until everything is well combined.

  • Scoop the mixture into the dish and press down with the back of the spoon to make it compact. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the mixture are beginning to brown.

  • Lift the parchment out of the dish and leave to cool before cutting into eight large or 16 small pieces.
