As a lot of people probably already know I LOVE cake, however a few months ago I learnt what was making my stomach a misery and I cut out lactose from my life. For this cheese loving mum this was devastating and, I have struggled, as I quickly learnt that pretty much everything contains some form of dairy. I have been pretty lucky to find lactose free products to replace the day to day items but cake? Cake that is dairy free that still tastes good is so hard to find! So I’ve decided to make my own recipes up!
Using a regular mug I have been measuring out some of my favourite ingredients and creating some yummy recipes that the whole family can eat, unless you’re like my husband who detests any form of dried fruit!
This recipe is so delicious and so easy taking about half an hour in total to make and bake, perfect to do once little ones have gone to bed!
The ingredients I used were
6 mugs of fruity muesli
4 mugs of just plain rolled oats
1/2 a mug of demerara sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
5 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 block of vegetable baking margarine
Plus a square tin greased with some of the vegetable margarine left on the pack.
First I pre-heated the oven to about 180 degrees then put the vegetable margarine, demerara sugar, cinnamon and syrup in a pan to combine on a low heat letting the mix combine and melt together, but when starting to boil removed from the heat and added the rest of the ingredients. Basically I just kept chucking stuff in until it binded! Then I chucked it all in the tin pressed down to ensure no gaps and baked for 25 minutes until all golden brown and a bit crisp on the top!
I should’ve left mine in the tin to cool but I turned it out and it did crumble a little bit so I put in back in the tin and popped it in the fridge to cool (mainly to stop the cat from getting it) But I think it can be stored in a tin or fridge it’s up to you. I made these Friday and we only have a 1/4 of them left so they must be okay! I think they’re lovely anyway! So there it is my take on dairy free flapjacks that have some healthy bits but are delicious! Let me know if you have a go at this recipe and what you think. Parkers given them his approval anyway!
