Healthier Almond Butter Flapjacks

These Almond Butter Flapjacks are far healthier for you than store-bought flapjacks which are often packed with high-cholesterol fats from butter or margarine and a high sugar content. My flapjack recipe is naturally sweetened with dates and banana and held together with almond butter instead. They are Vegan friendly and can also be gluten-free if required.

If you love flapjacks then you’re going to love these. When I first made these I was in love. The taste and texture is so good. They are the perfect mixture of sweetness, crunch and the taste of roasted almonds blends together so well. You must make them!

They are so much better for you than the flapjacks and granola bars you would find in the supermarket which are more than likely made with a lot of sugar and butter. Whereas, these bars are made with natural sweetener and almond butter which combine with the dry ingredients perfectly. They can be drizzled with an optional layer of ‘chocolate sauce’ which is completely optional and they are just as good without so it depends if you’re chocolate obsessed like I am.

I personally eat these for breakfast because I cannot resist but they are the perfect on-the-go snack for later on in the day or for a dessert treat when you get home.

   

These are the perfect snack to make ahead and pack up for the week or they make enough to be able to share with friends and family. They can be gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats and Vegan friendly too, and they store well in fridge for a week or in the freezer for longer term storage, just defrost whenever you fancy a sweet treat. I always like to have these stashed away as they are my favourite and I always fancy them!

 

**If you haven’t got date syrup or dates to make your own syrup then just replace this and the mashed banana with 1/2 cup maple syrup and use 1 cup roasted almond butter instead. This option is a lot sweeter due to the maple syrup and they crisp up perfectly!
