A post that will hopefully make you feel even more festive the day before Christmas. If you're struggling with a few presents, why not cook these super quick flapjacks, wrap them up, and make someone smile tomorrow - there's still time! I found this recipe online a couple of months ago and have made a couple of batches of flapjacks since. Both of which were extremely delicious, super easy, and very quick.
Ingredients (makes 9 rectangles)
- 180g oats (gluten free if intolerant)
- 175g dates, chopped
- 2 very ripe bananas
- 80ml vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
1. Start by turning your oven to 175°c. Mash the bananas well in a large bowl and then add the chopped dates and oil.
2. Next stir in the oats and vanilla essence, and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes so that the oats absorb the oil.
3. Place the mixture into a suitable greased baking dish/tray (I used a rectangular glass one) and flatten it down. Cook for 25-30 minutes, until golden.
