Inspired by a fellow blogger, I adapted her recipe this week, healthy flapjacks, to suit the ingredients I had on hand. The result was so quick & easy to make and is a perfect lunchbox counterpart packed with fibre!
Fun fact: Did you know one medium pear has 5.5g of fibre? Hence, it is one of the most fibre rich fruits.
On the super healthy kids blog, they have been talking all things fibre this week. So, I recommend having a look at the recipes they’ve been posting.
Pear flapjacks for kids
1 1/2 cups of Oats
1/2 cup Dried Mixed Fruit
2 peeled, cored & chopped ripe pears (you don’t have to peel it & this way you keep more fibre)
Juice from half an orange
1/2 cup Dessicated coconut
2tbsp Macadamia nut oil
Preheat your oven to 180oC & get out a 20cm x 20cm square cake tin.
In a food processor, whizz oats, dried mixed fruit, coconut, orange juice and pears to get a thick paste.
In a saucepan melt the butter together with the honey and macadamia nut oil. Pour this into your tin (this acts to grease the tin too) and swirl it around. Mix in the oat mixture. Pat the flapjack mixture down into the tin & pop it into the oven for 20mins.
Cut it into bar like slices once it is out of the oven. You can store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
