Spice up your back-to-school lunchboxes
Try our deliciously vegan, low calorie Peanut Hottie banana flapjacks
As we ease back into the school routine, lunches at home will be a thing of the past again.
While some of you will probably be in total celebration mode about that, it means it’s time to get creative with lunchboxes again!
We all need a treat sometimes to help us get through the day, and you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be sending them to school with healthy, low-calorie and vegan snacks.
Our low calorie peanut butter banana flapjacks are a great addition to lunchboxes, or even as a healthy after-school snack.
Better still, they’re heaps of fun to make!
Here’s how you can make them at home...
Ingredients (to make 8 funsize flapjacks)
2 large overripe bananas (very important that they’re overripe, as this will make your flapjacks nice and naturally sweet)
65g chopped pecan nuts
4 tbsp of peanut hottie powder, mixed into a paste with a dash of water
2 tbsp coconut oil
1-2 tbsp. maple syrup (optional)
First, you want to preheat your oven to 180°c.
While you wait, melt the coconut oil on the hob, and make sure all of your ingredients are measured out.
Grab your bananas and mash them together in a large mixing bowl, before adding in all the other measured ingredients, including your favourite Peanut Hottie powder and melted coconut oil, one by one.
Once all ingredients are in the bowl, mix very well until gloopy.
Grab a medium-sized oven dish and line it with greaseproof parchment paper.
Then, spoon your mixture out onto the parchment paper, and use a wooden spoon or spatula to flatten it down and fill out your dish.
Pop in the middle of your oven and bake for around 20-25 minutes, until nice and golden brown.
Once out of the oven, allow your bake to cool down completely before cutting into squares.
Hey presto! Delicious, healthy, vegan Peanut Hottie flapjacks - perfect for lunchboxes or an after-school treat.
Your flapjacks can be kept refrigerated for up to a week if kept in an airtight container.
