Easy No-Sugar Banana Flapjacks


These no sugar banana flapjacks find the sweetness in the natural sugars from the fruit and honey making these little wholesome gems perfect as a healthy snack or post-workout treat. They are jam-packed with nutrients and they have a delicious, natural flavour too.

Flapjack recipes can be full of lots of naughty butter and sugar but this one uses only a small amount of dairy free margarine and contains absolutely no artificially refined sugar.

It makes this recipe a fab baking option for improving our health and well being and is also a great snack option for little ones.  You could pop a flapjack in their lunch box or give one to them as an after school snack?

For grown ups, flapjacks are perfect to restore lost energy after a hard work out at the gym or just when you feel a bit peckish and you want to avoid the temptation of the biscuit jar!

Refined sugar free. Gluten free. Dairy free. Soya free.
