A healthy snack.
For a tasty and nutricious snack that the kids will love, why not make a batch of flapjacks?
It is a very simple recipe to make and can be flavoured with a variety of different fruits (fresh or dried), you can also add seeds if you wish, so that it will suit the pallette of the fussiest of kids!
Place 250 grams of oats into a bowl with a couple of handfulls the fruit of your choice ( the flapjacks in the picture contain apricots and cranberries). For a bit of oomph add a little cinnamon or mixed space.
Melt 80 grams of brown sugar into 80 grams of butter and two tablespoons of honey (or golden syrup if you prefer) over a low heat and then add to the oats and fruit and stir thoroughly.
Shape the mixture into an oblong in baking tray, lined with grease-proof paper and bake for 20 minutes at 170C.
It really is a winner with the kids and is truly versatile due to the fact you can chop and change the fruit content. For those of you who have ultra fussy kids, get them to do the mixture themselves! It really is a sure fire way to pique their interest.
