Breakfast is the most important part of the day but more often than not, it gets bypassed as everyone is rushing out of the door. It only takes an extra long shower to knock your whole morning off schedule and breakfast is usually the first casualty. Luckily, I have a weapon to combat morning hunger – my breakfast flapjack. They are a deliciously healthy way to start the day and they contain a whole lot of fruit. They don’t take long to prepare and will keep for a week, if they last that long! If they don’t, any left overs can be crushed and used as a crumble topping.
Breakfast flapjack is great with porridge, yoghurt or just on it’s own with a brew. It’s small enough to wrap a bit up and shove it in your pocket for your journey or to save for later and eat at your desk. You can jazz it up a bit and melt some chocolate over the top for a sweeter breakfast treat too. The possibilities are endless. If you don’t like the ingredients I have used, all of the dried fruits can be substituted for others. It’s just a case of adding the things you like and removing the things you don’t. This recipe works well in my house and it’s a sneaky way to top up fruit intake without it being a chore. The Boy often has breakfast flapjack with a banana on his way to school.
