Raspberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks – Fast to Make and Easy to Eat

Raspberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks

As I was buying some bananas in the Co-op the other day, I noticed a pack of reduced price raspberries. I couldn’t resist. They were fine, but not quite enticing enough to eat as they were; they looked as though they needed to be used quickly. The fastest thing I know how to bake are flapjacks. In next to no time, I had a plate of warm raspberry and white chocolate flapjacks.

Raspberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks

I based my raspberry and white chocolate flapjacks on a recipe for blueberry and white chocolate flapjacks that I haven’t yet posted. I extricated some condensed milk which had been lurking in the back of the fridge since I made Baileys ice-cream and set to. The result were these fast and fruity flapjacks. They were both sweet and tart, crisp on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside – very tasty. If only all baking were this simple.

I grew up on flapjacks and have many recipes for these fabulous oaty bakes. Have a look, you’re bound to find something you like the sound of. They are super fast to make. These raspberry and white chocolate flapjacks can be ready in half an hour. They’re particularly good for picnics, lunch boxes or eating on the go. They also make a delicious pudding when served warm with custard or cream. If you use gluten-free oats, they are also perfect for celiacs and those who have a gluten intolerance.

Spotting the bargain price raspberries for 49p makes these simple but very tasty flapjacks prime targets for Credit Crunch Munch which is being hosted over at Jen’s Food this month. Challenge created by Helen of Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla of Fab Food 4 All.

Using up said raspberries and the condensed milk also means these flapjacks can be sent to the No Waste Food Challenge over at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary.

      Thanks Johanna. The condensed milk gives a really nice flavour and makes them slightly fudgy in texture. I guess the joy of seasonal food is to wait until it’s in season 🙂

    Never baked flapjacks before. They are not very well known in The Netherlands. I saw the list of other recipes and straight away put the oven on. For further reading: see my comment below the recipe for ‘jammy flapjacks’.

      Ah yes Henk, flapjacks are a much loved British store cupboard classic. The standard recipe is butter, sugar, syrup and oats and what ever dried fruit and nut additions you care to add. It’s a great recipe to adapt too, using honey instead of syrup for example, or condensed milk as I have here.

    The reduced price fruit can look so tempting in the shops but I’m usually too pushed for time to use it in any elaborate recipe. This sounds like a very fine idea. I must remember this.

    I love the look of these flapjacks and am intrigued by the addition of condensed milk which I’ve not seen used in a flapjack before. I have to admit to never buying it and I think the last time I did was as a teen in order to make some fudge. So I imagine these flapjacks to be extra gooey and fudgey:-) Thanks for linking to #CreditCrunchMunch and to my Banoffee Flapjacks:-)

      Thanks Camilla. The condensed milk makes a change from sugar and syrup and does give them a bit of an appealing fudgy consistency 🙂

    Flapjacks are so good for using up fruit. If you haven’t done it before, try roasting the fruit before it goes into the flapjack mix….. Divine!

    Just a ‘teaser comment’: they are in the oven right now, so I’ll have one (or two) for breakfast tomorrow morning. A few minor alterations: substituted the jumbo oats (never heard of) for 50 g. of ground almonds, 120 g. instead of 150 g. raspberries (very expensive here this year, so I bought just one small box; the recipe better be good … ;))

      Ooh, I hope you are not disappointed Henk. The jumbo oats are pretty much what they say – just larger oats which I added for extra texture, but ordinary oats would have been fine. I expect the addition of ground almonds will make them even more delicious, but I will be interested to find out if they still hold together properly.

        They are indeed rather crumbly because of the almonds, but the taste is good. I have to say that I have never been a fan of the taste of condensed milk, but I found a can in the cupboard and was curious enough to try this recipe. It is definitely to be recommended and the combination with raspberries and white chocolate is a good one.
        So, still 200 ml of condensed milk left to finish. Would it be a good idea to mix it into a brownie of some sort ?

          Not sure about brownies, but given the fudgy quality they have it’s worth a try. I make a dead easy ice-cream with 200 ml condensed milk. It doesn’t have an obvious taste as it’s combined with 600ml whipped double cream and whatever else you add – you’ll find loads of different recipes for it in my ice-cream recipe section. But I think you’d like these halva flapjacks which also use it – /2011/07/white-chocolate-halva-flapjacks/
