I was thrilled to get a box of goodies delivered from the lovely people at Forest Feast. I’m a big fan of their products so it was great to try some of their new dried fruit range. I love the new packaging too.
I already use their fruits as toppings for my porridge and both the fruits and nuts are great to put into a Tupperware box and bring with me as a healthy snack. These were a life saver when I was losing weight and stopped me reaching for something stodgy.
Anyway I decided to experiment and make flapjacks. They were lovely – I sort of just guessed at the ingredients but they turned out well (even though they don’t look great) but all got eaten within a day so I’d say they were a hit.
Forest Feast Cherry, Pecan and Maple Syrup Flapjacks.
150g porridge oats
70g caster sugar (I wouldn’t use as much next time as they were very sweet)
3 dessert spoons of maple syrup
5 Forest Feast dried cherries (chopped)
5 pecan nuts (chopped)
Grease a baking tin or Pyrex dish with butter
Melt the butter over a low heat, add the sugar and maple syrup. Heat gently until the mix starts to thicken slightly
Remove from the heat and add the oats, fruit and nuts.
Put the mixture into the baking dish and cook for around 20 minutes at 180
When you take it out of the oven cut into squares of bars (whatever you prefer)
Wait until they are cool to take them out of the tray or they will fall to bits.
These are just so easy to make and you can experiment with the ingredients. I’m going to try more recipes so watch this space. You can check out Forest Feast here: https://forestfeast.com/
I want to try the Street Food range next as they sound lovely.
Disclaimer: I was sent the dried fruit by Forest Feast but bought all the other ingredients myself. No payment changed hands.
