DIY: Christmas Flapjacks


DIY: Christmas Flapjacks
So it's that time of year again, and I love any excuse to get in the kitchen and do some baking. So today I decided to give the Classic flapjack and Christmas twist.


You will need;

Dry Rolled Oats
Honey
Unsalted butter
Sugar
Over ripe bananas
Cinnamon
Sultanas/raisins


First Start with about 150g of Unsalted butter melting gently in a pan, then add about a cup of honey, once these are melted together, add about a cup of sugar and sir until all components are melted together and turn off the heat.



Using a knife mash up 2 over ripened bananas and add it to the sugar, butter and honey and mix. By adding banana you not only add a gorgeous sweet taste to the cookies, but it also allows you to use half the butter as normal, cutting down the amount of fat in the cookies. 

Transfer the ingredients into another bowl, before adding the rolled oats bit by bit, this part you need to just judge when you've added enough. You need enough oats to make a thick paste, that isn't runny or too dry. 

Then add 1tps of cinnamon, or more if you fancy and a cup of raisins or sultanas. And mix well.


Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for about half an hour to cool off. 

Grease a cookie tray and roll the flapjack mix into small balls and flatten onto the tray to make cookies. Then place to cookies into the oven at 200 degrees until they turn a golden brown colour. Once cooked, remove the cookies carefully and place on a cooling tray.

 These are so tasty, with the hint of cinnamon, they make the perfect companion for your cup of tea over Christmas time!
