Flapjacks are a great go-to snack and if you’re short of time or want to save some energy (yours and your fuel bill…) you don’t even have to bake them.

Thanks to Alison from @budgethealthyeating for this super-simple, no-fuss recipe.

INGREDIENTS

  • 200g butter, spread or non-dairy alternative
  • 100g sugar of choice (for example granulated sugar, honey or golden syrup)
  • 400g oats (gluten-free if necessary)

Method

1. Line a container about 31x21cm with parchment paper.

2. Heat the spread and sugar in a large saucepan until melted and mixed together.

3. Stir in the oats.

4. Press the mixture into the lined container and refrigerate.

5. When the mixture has set, lift it out of the container and cut into individual pieces.

Team Tip: personalise this basic recipe by adding dried fruit, chocolate or a mix of nuts, depending on your family’s diet. Add these when you add the oats. It is also nice with melted chocolate drizzled on top.

  • Sesame free hummus

    It’s easy to leave sesame (in the form of tahini) out of hummus and still have a really delicious, easy dip. This is one of our favourites!

  • Baked jacket potatoes

    Not so much of a recipe as a reminder not to forget about the humble British spud when you are planning what to feed your family. Potatoes are so versatile, packed with vitamin C and fibre and relatively inexpensive. They’re a great alternative to gluten-free pasta and rice.

  • Apples and raisins baked in apple juice

    Nick, Jen’s husband, does not have good memories of “baked apples” from his childhood but he’s happy that this recipe is a regular in their house.

  • Rice Pudding

    Find comfort in a bowl with this old-fashioned pudding, especially when it is cold outside. You do need to use short-grain rice and take it out of the oven before all the milk has absorbed, so that it is still creamy.

  • Beetroot Soup

    Beetroot soup is a fabulous colour as well as being nutritious and delicious. Blend everything together before serving if you prefer smooth soup.

  • Mince Pies

    Mince pies are Jen’s FAVOURITE Christmas food! This is her quick hack if you don’t have the ingredients (or time!) to make your own from scratch – just use shop-bought pastry and a jar of mincemeat.

**Always check the ingredients of any food you’re cooking with to make sure it doesn’t contain something you or your child should avoid.
