Apple Flapjacks

IMG_7729

Hi everybody,

I was always a big campaigner for preventing food waste, but it became more important during lock down. So when I saw 4 sad apples in my fridge going a bit soft I knew I had to do something with them.

I also found some nuts in my cupboard expiring soon, so I incorporated them into the mix.

INGREDIENTS

4 apples, diced

45ml golden syrup

300g oats

100g walnuts, ground

100g sugar – optional

Small amount of water and butter

METHOD

Place the diced apple in a pan and cook with the golden syrup and water and butter over a medium heat until soft.

Place the walnuts in a food processor and grind

Add the walnut grounds and oats to a bowl

Add the sugar to the walnut/oat mix if using

Place the soft apple mix into the food processor and mix to a puree

Add to the oat/walnut mix and combine all together

Press into a greased square baking tin

Cook at 180 degrees for 20 minutes

Enjoy!
