Serves: 8

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes


3 really ripe organic bananas, chopped

2 cooked organic beetroots

2 scoops acai (optional)

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 tbsp almond butter

2 cups organic gluten free oats

1/3 cup flax

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup sesame seeds

1/3 cup ground almonds

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp mixed spice

Pinch chilli flakes

1/3 cup melted coconut oil


1/2 cup blueberries

Handful muesli or mixed nuts and seeds


Pre heat the oven to gas mark 5/190c.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add the banana, beetroot, almond butter and acai to a food processor until thoroughly blended.

Heat the coconut oil very gently in a saucepan until melted then add to the wet mix – pulse for a second.

Add the wet mix to the mixture and stir well until everything is combined (this shouldn’t be too wet).

Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and spread the mix on top, around an inch thick.

Top with the blueberries and your choice of crunchy toppings.

Bake for 30 minutes then test the middle of the flapjacks with a knife to ensure they are cooked through. If not then bake for a further few minutes and test again.

Remove from the oven, leave to cool slightly and then divide into squares.
