This week being half term week here in the UK, I fancied a quick and easy snack I could make with the boys for our little excursions. As it’s also a week in a run up to Halloween I knew they would most likely have abundance of chocolate treats so wanted something that little bit healthier. We all love flapjacks but not the amount of sugar in them so decision was made to make a batch that is a bit healthier but still super tasty. Say hello to my Healthier Date & Banana Flapjacks. 🙂
It’s such a quick and easy bake which is mostly sweetened with super overripe bananas and some sticky pureed dates. If you wanted to make these completely refined sugar free than substitute golden syrup with some honey. Make sure you use really, really overripe bananas though as they are the main source of sweetness here.
I am pretty partial to flapjacks and enjoy them both soft and crunchy, perhaps with slight preference towards soft. And that is exactly what this recipe gives you. Beautifully soft and chewy, almost cakey like flapjack. I thought the slice of banana on each square would be a nice little touch and it worked really well. I added generous teaspoon of cinnamon to the mix as well as I love the combination with banana.
