Banana and raisin flapjacks

A healthy and delicious twist on the traditional flapjack, these banana and raisin treats are easy to prepare and taste great!

It’s that time of year again when all the children are back at school and the days are slowly getting shorter as we head into Autumn. I have a recipe for a perfect lunchbox or after school treat which is both healthy and nutritious. A twist on the traditional flapjack, it contains both bananas and raisins and not too much sugar compared to standard flapjack recipe. They keep well in a Tupperware box so could be used for snacks throughout the week if they last that long!
