How To Make Fat-Free Flapjack


Fancy some flapjack that has no butter or margarine in it? That is point-free on WW Filling & Healthy? That is totally delicious? Then here’s the recipe!

• 200g rolled oats
• 1 apple, chopped into little pieces
• 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
• 3 tbsp golden syrup
• 100ml skimmed milk
• 2 egg yolks

1. Preheat the oven to 160c
2. Mix the oats, apple and cinnamon in a bowl
3. In another bowl mix the milk, golden syrup and egg. Then add the oat mixture and stir well.
4. Spray a baking tin with fry light (or line with baking paper) and press the mixture into the tray.
5. Bake for 20-30 mins until the top is turning golden. Cut whilst warm (into 9 or 12 pieces, depending on the shape/size of your tin) and remove from tray when cooled.

I don’t like wasting the egg whites with this recipe though, so next time I make it (tonight or tomorrow probably!) I’ll try it with one whole egg rather than two yolks and see how that works.

EDIT: I made this last night and just used a whole egg rather than two yolks.  It came out fine, perhaps a little more chewy than with just the yolks, but then this method yields a more chewy flapjack than the regular way of making it with sugar and butter anyway.
