My eldest was at school today, so thought I would put together some flapjacks, so that he could have one for a snack when he got home. I wanted to make them suitable for my little one too. The result is these delicious little things, which I had to stop myself from nibbling at. I have a few ideas for some different varieties, so watch this space .
Makes 15 mini flapjacks
- 2 cups of old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup of dried apricots
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup of fresh pineapple juice (100% stuff)
Preheat oven to 180c or 350f (gas mark 4)
Place the oats and apricots in a food processor and roughly chop.
Place the butter in a small saucepan and heat until melted then stir in the pineapple juice. Remove from heat.
Add the oats and apricots to the melted butter mix and stir thoroughly.
Line a square tray (I used a 7 3/4″ one) with some baking paper.
Add your oat mixture and press down until you have an even layer in the tray. Score into 15 equal sized rectangles.
Place in the oven and bake for approx 25 mins, until lightly golden. Allow to cool and then you can cut out your flapjacks.
Store these in an air tight container to keep fresh.
NOTE FOR BABY LED WEANING: These are quite chewy, so I would wait until you little one has mastered chewing their food, before offering these.
