These gorgeously golden flapjacks studded with gooey sticky sweet strawberries and shards of bright green pistachio are delish.
Chock full of rolled oats, sweetened with maple syrup and bound together with the help of two bananas and a grated apple these flapjacks are a wonderful baby led weaning snack full of nutritional yumminess.
The little ones and I have baked flapjacks a few times over the last month, adding different fruits and nuts to keep these oaty darlings interesting. So far this strawberry and pistachio flapjack combination is our favourite with blueberry and coconut a very close runner up.
Traditional flapjacks contain quite a bit of sugar and butter which helps them to stick together and form firm bars. This recipe with far less sugar and butter is less dense and the bars can be a little crumbly. This however didn’t stop Miss G. and Mr H. from demolishing them. Harry used his iron grip to crumble the bars into smithereens then slowly and thoughtfully picked and snacked his way through the strawberry studded rubble. Also, I picked any whole pistachios off of Mr H.’s bar. If your little one isn’t yet eating nuts feel free to use equal amounts of shredded coconut, or finely ground the pistachios in a food processor.
