Peanut Butter & Banana Flapjacks

Admittedly I am not one to bake regularly. I prefer cooking savoury meals because they are a lot easier to tweak and cook to taste, whereas when baking you have to be precise otherwise you end up with a disaster! I also think there are a lot of recipes out there for baking that are so unhealthy it does put me off when I am pouring so much sugar into something I am making.

However! I found a recipe for flapjacks that wasn’t too unhealthy, and was easy to do 🙂 Plus the flapjacks turned out lovely so I am sure I will be making these again.

Ingredients to make approx 20 square flapjacks;

  • 200g peanut butter
  • 200g honey
  • 300g rolled oats
  • 2 over-ripe bananas
  • I also added about 1 tbsp chopped mixed nuts and 1 tbsp choc chips

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4.
  2. Melt the honey and peanut butter in a saucepan on a medium heat.
  3. Mix the melted mixture the mashed up bananas and add in the oats gradually, mixing it all together to make a thick mixture.
  4. Add in your extras (nuts, choc chips, dried fruit etc) and then pour into a baking tray lined with butter or parchment or both. As I don’t bake a lot, I didn’t have any parchment so I lined a way-too-big baking tray just with butter and pressed out the mixture so it was about 1.5cm thick.
  5. Bake on 180 degrees/gas mark 4 for 15-20 mins and then take out to cool.

These turned out better than expected and using the honey is a lot healthier than using caster sugar.

Please have a go at making them yourself and let me know what you think!
