Well not strictly sugar free but there's no added sugar, no sweeteners and no cheating with honey or any syrup either. This is also full of lovely high fibre ingredients so incredibly filling and will keep you sated for a while.
Sugar Free Flapjacks - makes 16 small squares
150g stoned dates, chopped
5 tbsp apple juice
150g unsalted butter (or margarine if you prefer)
225g porridge oats
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 170oC (fan) slightly higher for non fan assisted.
Pour the apple juice over the dates and (try) to blend them together using a stick blender. I say 'try' because it's fairly hard work. Don't worry if they don't all blend in.
Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the date mixture and the sultanas. Heat gently until it's all combined as some sticky goo.
Add the oats and cinnamon then turn into a lined deep square or rectangular baking dish sprayed with spray oil or greased with butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned on top. Cut into 16 squares and leave until fully cooled in the dish (they break apart otherwise).
These were a hit with my toddler and went down a treat with a cup of tea for mummy too! Apologies for the poor photography, I'm back to using my phone today. Boo hiss.
Or if you would like a full on buttery flapjack for grown ups, try this recipe;
If you like this, why not try my other recipe for no added sugar flapjack, see the photo below, which, dare I say it... I think is better!
Got some oats left after making this? Why not try making some no added sugar mini muffins with oats? Or why not try making some bircher muesli? Fancy something else with dates? Give my date loaf a whirl, it has no added sugar either!
