150g rolled oats
1 tbsp desiccated coconut
50g coconut oil (melted for a few seconds in the microwave)
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.
