Sugar Free, Gluten Free Power Balls and Flapjacks

I've had a day of cleaning and baking today. I've scrubbed and bleached the bathroom, cleaned the windows, hoovered, scrubbed the floors by hand as the steam mop has broken and tidied and cleaned the kitchen!

Then I decided I hadn't made anything sweet for a while, so I dug out Davina's book and have made the Power balls and flapjacks. 

I had bought almond nut butter a while ago with the intention of making the power balls but had ended up eating most of it on toast and so only had enough to make half of the amount. 


                50g nut butter

                50g honey

                50g desiccated coconut

                50g gluten free oatmeal

                Desiccated coconut & cocoa powder for rolling


            Put your nut butter and honey into a saucepan and heat until melted. 

            Weigh out your coconut and oatmeal and pour your butter/honey into it. 

            Stir everything in then pop into the fridge for 10 minutes. 

            Roll the cooled mixture into walnut sized balls and roll in the coating of your choice. 

Flapjack ingredients:

             200g unsalted butter

             250ml honey

             75g chopped apricots

             75g raisins

             350g gluten free oats


            Melt the honey and butter in a saucepan. 

            Add the fruit and oats and stir together. 

           Put mixture onto a baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes on gas mark 4. As soon as you take them out cut the surface and then when cooled cut into squares. 

Looking forward to trying it all. 

Off for a sit down and a natter with my Mother-in-Law now. 

Take care,
