I’ve just realised that these are not actually flapjacks, but ‘bars’. Raspberry and pine nut bars. Bars. I’ve been confused or misled. I’m going with misled. Shame on you, nefarious, unnamed misleader, SHAME ON YOU.
I thought I’d found the perfect flapjacks in these beauts:
Unfortunately, there’s an issue (even aside from the ‘bar’ issue which I covered extensively previously) insomuch as they require FRUIT. Will this tragedy never end?!
So what I’m going with is that these ARE flapjacks (FIGHT THE POWER!) BUT only if you have some fruit to put in the middle. I used rhubarb from the allotment, which worked our rhu-perbly. I prefer this type of treat less sweet so this was perfect. It would work fine with frozen fruit from Ye Morrisons/the bASDArds/Snailsbury’s/AN Other supermarket.
I should point out that AN Other is not a chain of supermarkets.
Here’s the finished article (NB: Not an actual article):
The recipe does actually make 12 good sized FLAPJACKS (in your face, BBC Good Food).
So in summary, the quest for the perfect flapjack if you have fruit is over already. I shall endeavour to now find the best flapjack without fresh/frozen fruit. This will be more in line with a traditional flapjack. It’s going to be oats of fun. Loads of fun.
