I love making flapjacks to take to work and on long walks, they’re really good for slow release energy and always taste amazing! There are so many different flavour combinations you can use but most of mine contain peanut butter or chocolate so I decided to come up with a completely different recipe. I had a load of raspberries in the fridge from getting over-excited at the reduced counter so thought they would taste amazing in a flapjack! These raspberry and coconut oat bars have a much softer texture than your traditional flapjack thanks to the coconut milk, it’s hard to believe they contain no nasties! They are completely gluten free, low fodmap and refined sugar free.
