Friday Treats: Vegan Friendly Flapjacks

Now I have been going on about baking for ages whilst simultaneously jabbering on about being healthy etc. etc. yadda yadda yadda, Shut up already and give me some deliciously healthy recipes I hear you shout!

Well I know I mentioned Vegan Flapjacks a few days ago and I didnt want to disappoint so I thought I would offer up the recipe as a possible solution to your weekend treat predicament. ( Here I am  of course presuming everyone likes to treat themselves at the weekend)

Now I know you will look at the sugar content and tell me they are not healthy… pst…. Come closer …( I KNOW THEY ARE NOT HEALTHY BUT I LIKE PRETENDING BECAUSE THEY ARE SO YUMMY) ( and they’re not that bad anyway!)

hmm…. So… anyway. It all got a little intense there. Backing away from the scary healthy vs not healthy chatter I might as well share the recipe with you. Although, not before telling you that before long I will definitely post something that is 100% unequivocally good for you. Il Padrino From Scratch, formerly known as ‘the Father’, is having a ‘No Carb’ moment and has requested that I spend some time searching out an appropriate breakfast menu that doesn’t mean he has to eat Eggs and Bacon or Fruit and Yogurt everyday. Not getting to cocky but I think I may be close to solving this so I fervently exclaim “Challenge Accepted!’

Watch this space…. (no no, not this space right now, but in the future you know – come back and check it out…)
