#MotivationalMonday: How to make sugar free flapjacks

I have such a big sweet tooth like I literally could eat cake for breakfast, biscuits for lunch and chocolate for T- I just never seem to get cravings for anything savoury! So i’ve been trying to find some inspiration for mid-day snacks and desserts I can have that don’t contain all the nasty sugar.image

I love a good cereal bar as an afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of tea or as a quick on-the-go breakfast but the sad thing is all of these bars that claim to be ‘healthy’ are actually packed full of sugar… probably why I pick them up for thatΒ quick boost of energy.

I’ve created a recipeΒ for flapjacks which is completely refined sugar-free and can be made gluten-free or dairy-free.

Ingredients (makes about 8 flapjacks):

1 cup of gluten-free oats or traditional rolled oats

3 tbsp of butter or coconut oil

1 mashed banana

1 tsp of vanilla extract

1/4 cup of raisins

1/4 cup of designated coconut

1 1/12 tbsp of agave nectar

Simple steps:

  1. Honestly this recipe is just so easy to do and not very messy at all! Firstly melt the butter in a saucepan with the mashed banana, agave nectar and vanilla extract until runny.
  2. Take the mixture off the heat and pour in the oats, raisins and coconut and combine all of this together.
  3. Pour the mixture into a baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes (until they start to look a little golden on top.

You can always replace the coconut or raisins with any other alternative like cranberries, apricots, seeds or nuts. Get experimenting! These tasty treats are great with a cuppa for pick-me-up snack or as an on-the-go breakfast.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a great start to the week!
