Ingredients

Almond & Strawberry Jam Flapjacks (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Ingredients for flapjacks:

  • 200g gluten-free oats
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 60g gluten-free plain white flour
  • 2 tblsp almond extract
  • 2 tblsp maple syrup
  • 170g soya margarine
  • Pinch of salt
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 3 large tblsp jam ( I used St. Dalfour strawberry jam, which is 100% natural & contains no cane sugar)

Ingredients for yoghurt/chocolate topping (optional):

  • 62g dairy-free plain yoghurt (I used soya)
  • 150g dairy-free white chocolate

How to make Almond & Strawberry Jam Flapjacks (Vegan & Gluten Free)

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.

2. Put the oats, salt, ground Almonds and flour into a large mixing bowl.

3. Melt the margarine and maple syrup together in a small saucepan on the hob.  Pour into the dry mixture and mix together until combined, then stir 2 tablespoon almond extract.

4. Spoon half of the mixture into your lined baking tray and firmly press, making sure to get right into the edges.

5. Spread the jam over the oat layer.

6. Place the other half of the oat mixture on top of the jam and level with a cold spoon or your hands and firmly press. Sprinkle over some flaked almonds for added flavour & texture.

7. Pop the tray into the middle of the pre-heated oven and leave to bake for 20 minutes. Turn the tray around and bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until golden brown.

8. Once golden brown, remove the tray from the oven and place onto a cooling rack to fully cool down!

9. (To make the white topping - optional) Melt the white chocolate & when silky smooth, leave to cool.

10. (Optional) Spread an even layer of the topping onto the cold flapjack. I sprinkled on some coconut curls, dried natural cherries, flaked almonds & freeze dried strawberry pieces.

11. Cut the flapjack into squares and place in the fridge and allow the topping to set.

Keep stored in a sealed Container in the Fridge
