I think these should be called Cakies! They are the perfect combination of a cake and a cookie. They are thick and loaded with chocolate chips; they are very satisfying and filling and full of good stuff like bananas and oats.
I’ve adapted some of the ingredients so you can choose to go with the original or make the recipe a little healthier with less refined products. Either way, they are perfect as an afternoon or mid morning snack to keep you going till lunch or dinner time.
I love Flapjacks but the commercially baked ones are so high in processed sugar that they are a rare treat and sometimes just so sweet, they are not really a healthy choice.
This recipe is adapted from a Dove’s Farm original and as I prefer soft and chewy flapjacks, they are perfect for me. If you prefer yours crisp and crunchy, then leave them longer to bake. Simple!
The recipe is vegetarian and free from gluten, egg, soya, wheat and nuts so everyone should be able to enjoy them 🙂
We all regularly have bananas that no one will eat as they’ve gone black and soft and all sorts of faces are pulled when you suggest it’s taken! So the only thing to do is make Banana Bread. I’ve a few recipes here already including a great gluten free one : https://www.cozebakes.com/2017/02/03/gluten-free-dairy-free-healthy-banana-loaf/
but there are so many recipes out there that it’s great to find a new one to try and this originally came from Sarson’s (yes the vinegar people) and was published in the Baking Heaven magazine. It has a very fancy frosting which this time I left off as I just wanted a tasty Banana Bread to have with a cup of tea; you know sometimes, you just want something not too sweet or full of icing at hand and this works beautifully for both. I’ll give the Frosting details at the end and if you want, it can be boozy (it keeps getting better) !
