Cherry and apple flapjack slice and a whole lot of love!


This oaty, fruity, flapjacky treat is simply lovely! You can make it with any fruit compote you choose and in any shape you choose! I was feeling the love so I whipped up one rectangular one and one in a little heart shape! πŸ™‚

This is SO much better for you than traditional flapjack slices – it’s full of wholefoods and the addition of the chia seeds gives an added Omega boost too! You could use store bought compote but they tend to be full of sugar so have a go at making your own if you can – it’s so easy!

You will need:

1 cup Rice flour
1 cup Oats (or quinoa porridge flakes)
1/2 cup Desiccated coconut
1/4 cup Raw coconut sugar
1/4 cup Chia seeds
1 tsp ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Himalayan rock salt
110g Coconut oil (not melted)
3 Tbsp Maple syrup or Agave (or other liquid sweetener)
1 1/2 cup Cherry and apple compote

To make a quick cherry and apple compote take one punnet of cherries (pitted and roughly chopped in quarters) and approximately 3 – 4 Bramley apples (peeled, cored and chopped) and place in a bowl. Pop in the microwave and cook in short bursts until the apple has softened and the cherries are cooked through (can also be done in a saucepan on the hob). If required add a little unrefined sugar to sweeten (though I prefer it without sugar). Allow to cool.

Preheat oven to 175 C.

Add the flour, oats, coconut, sugar, chia seeds, ginger and salt to a large bowl and mix well. Add the coconut oil and rub it in to the dry mixture using your hands to create a breadcrumb consistency. Add the liquid sweetener and mix in to form a crumble-type mixture.

Line a rectangular or square (or heart shaped!) baking dish with baking paper (ensure the baking paper comes up the sides so you can easily remove the flapjack from the tin later). Take just over half of the mixture and place in to a lined baking tin and flatten well. Bake in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes until it starts to brown.

Remove from the oven and spread the compote over the base. Put the remaining crumble mix over the top and lightly press down. Bake in the oven again for 20 – 25 mins or until it browns.

Take it out the oven and let it cool in the tin (or if you can’t wait for it to cool completely wait at least 15 mins!). Then remove, cut up and enjoy πŸ™‚
