14 Sep FLAPJACKS – SWAP SUGAR FOR HONEY
Swap a Spoonful of Sugar for Honey
With the Easter holidays approaching at Sanctuary we thought you might enjoy a time-saving recipe for some mouth-watering flapjacks which are made with honey instead of sugar. These are a great treat for the whole family.
Flapjacks (c.Davina McCall)
- 200g unsalted butter
- 250ml honey (approx. 50ml = 3 tablespoons honey)
- 150g chopped dates
- 400g porridge oats
- 100g desiccated coconut
- Prehead the oven to 180oC/160oC Fan/Gas 4. Line a 30x20cm tin with baking parchment.
- Put the butter, honey and dates in a saucepan over a low heat. Melt them together, crushing the dates with a wooden spoon so they break up into the butter and honey and get all lovely and squidgy. Stir in the oats and coconut and mix thoroughly.
- Pack the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. The flapjacks will still seem soft at this point, but don’t worry – they’ll firm up once cool.
- Remove the tin from the oven and immediately score the surface into about 15 squares. Leave the flapjack to cool in the tin, then cut it into squares.
