Healthy Flapjacks -Recipe

I’m sure this post should probably be entitled ‘healthier’ flapjacks, rather than ‘healthy’… but for me, they’re healthy, ten times better than the ones I’ve made in the past, and in fairness you can tell, they lack the sugar sweetness, but they are tasty, and they definitely tide me over from my sugar urges and get me through snack time. And in that way they’re doing everything I wanted them to, and it’s a recipe which can be altered, to get the fruit, nuts and seeds which you prefer, that you already have in the cupboard, and to try something new as the urge takes.
