About the bake

If you're looking for a recipe for flapjacks with the guilt, then you've come to the right place. These mini apple flapjacks are made using Silver Spoon Half Spoon which helps reduce the overall sugar content compared with a flapjack made with plain sugar. These flapjacks contain tasty bits of fruit as well as chopped hazelnuts. The perfect little pick-me-up for that mid afternoon slump.

  1. Step 1:

  2. Step 2:

    Put the dates, apple juice and sugar in a food processor and whizz until smooth.
