An All-time Favourite recipe…low-FODMAP Flapjacks Puffs!Leave a Comment
First post – exciting! It also marks a year since I started my blog (time flies!), so, to celebrate, I’ve picked one of my all-time favourite recipes from the past year. Oh so simple, but oh so delicious…FLAPJACKS.
I must start by saying; I’m not a big baker. I’m actually very lazy when it comes to cooking – I want quick and simple meals which are tasty and varied, not asking too much, right?! I would love to be one of those people who take pleasure in creating and perfecting an array of culinary delights, however, other than cooking for a special occasion, I’m an in-and-out-the-kitchen kinda gal. How long did these take? About 30 minutes – my kind of timing! They are FAR cheaper to make yourself than to buy, you get far more flapjack for your money, you can freeze them, and, best of all, you can make them with 4 easy ingredients.
There are endless recipe websites for these, but I followed this one from Baking Mad. The joy of these simple recipes is that you can adapt and tailor them to suit your tastes by adding and experimenting with an endless variety of extra ingredients – lots of great FODMAP-friendly ingredients to choose from! In these ones I added gluten-free puffed rice and dried cranberries. (Limit dried fruit to 25g per serving).
Oats (gluten-free) 225g
Golden syrup 55g
Butter (unsalted) 170g – or alternative if you don’t tolerate
Here goes the easy peasy method…Line and grease a baking tray, pre-heat the oven (190C), melt the butter in a pan, then add the sugar and golden syrup to this, take off the heat, add the oats, add any extras, all into the baking tray, oven for 20/30 or until light golden brown (careful not to overcook!), and….TA-DAH! You’ve got low-FODMAP Flapjacks Puffs! Mark the slices with a knife and allow to cool – for as long as you can wait!!
Well, that brings my first post to an end! Until next week…xo
