Banana, Almond and Chocolate Flapjacks

Just a bit of light Tuesday baking for me today! As you may know I loooooooove baking with fruit especially bananas… even better when it involves chocolate of some sort.

So here are some scrummy light bites to munch on throughout the week. They are literally the easiest things to make – no effort whatsoever – just throw in the ingredients – mix it up – put it in the tray – hey presto you’re there!

Serve with a cup of tea and maybe even an episode of Neighbours to treat yourself (yes this may be punishment for some but I love it 😉 )

Banana, Almond and Chocolate Flapjacks (serves 12)

115g unsalted butter

85g light brown sugar

3 tbsp golden syrup

300g porridge oats

2 ripe bananas, mashed (leave some chopped to place on top)

100g dark chocolate

50g flaked almonds

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a baking tray
  2. Put the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan and heat gently until melted
  3. Stir in the oats and leave for 2 minutes
  4. Now stir in the mashed bananas, almonds and chocolate chunks – allowing the chocolate to melt a little but not completely (for around 4 minutes)
  5. Remove from the heat and spoon the mixture into your tray – pressing down to make sure the top is level
  6. Place the extra banana slices on top and bake in the oven for around 25-30 minutes
  7. Leave to cool completely before cutting into squares

Apologies for the lack of photos – I may have started eating these and they may have disappeared pretty quickly before I could organise a photoshoot…
