Let’s talk flapjacks. Before I joined Slimming World I hated them, never liked the texture and always felt they was too “healthy”. I mean just because there was oats in them didn’t mean they was healthy but that’s what my brain told me.
A few months into our journey and I craved flapjacks…. seriously what was going through my head all of a sudden? So we brought the tray of Tesco’s value flapjack which can be found in the cake aisle. This was a one off treat on an off plan day. And do you know what? I ruddy loved it!! It was sweet, it was gooey and it felt like a healthy treat…. until I worked out the syns…. oops!
Now don’t get me wrong you can totally buy the tray, portion it up and have it within your daily syn allowance, but it seemed a lot of syns on something that felt too “healthy” to be a treat and I would rather those syns on a chocolate bar or …. ice cream!! If memory serves me it cuts into 8 portions at 9 syns a piece… no thank you.
So I started experimenting with a healthier recipe with lower syns and using my HexB.
More and more flapjack recipes are appearing on our blog so do keep checking back to see what is new.
