Peanut Butter and Raisin Flapjacks

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I used to bake flapjacks so often when I was much younger as it’s pretty simple to make. It’s actually been a while so I thought I’d switch it up using peanut butter (PB) and raisins for that lovely balance of sweet and salty. I’ve used smooth peanut butter but I feel like crunchy PB would work just as well. This is quite a sweet treat so be sure to eat with moderation, try offering some slices to your friends, family, and work colleagues!

This recipe is full of many great ingredients such as PB, oats and raisins. A great snack idea and full of protein for that extra burst of energy. These flapjacks taste so good and you get all of the flavours with a subtle hint of PB, also try them whilst slightly warm for a comforting dessert along with a scoop of ice cream.

Mars Bar Flapjacks

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a great day. I made this recipe because we had quite a few Mars bars in the house as it’s everyone’s least favourite chocolate bar. I decided on flapjacks because of the sweet ingredients from the syrup and sugar and I thought the Mars bar would be a great alternative. So… the end result was okay, the flapjacks stuck together and looked good however, there was a slight malt-nougat taste that I didn’t really like. Anyway, the good thing about this recipe is that there are only 3 ingredients and it takes very little time to make.
