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