talking of microwave……flapjack…mmmmm!

We are in need of some supertastic energy. Little man and I have done a lot of walking the past couple of days. Night time with a torch is fun, we had a great time listening to night-time noises such as owls and the scuffle of hedgehogs which we spotted in the undergrowth of some trees. Something ran across the path infront of us, far to quick for us to see with a torch. All very exciting!

On a trip into town we found a weigh your own shop selling jumbo oats which I haven’t seen for quite some time. Flapjacks are on the menu but who wants to wait 45 mins for them to cook then another 10 or so for them to cool enough? Well yes we could if we really wanted to but we are hungary!

Big Man’s Banana Flapjacks.

From the weigh shop a small very sticky bag of glace cherries

about 2 large cups of jumbo oats

2 ripe medium-sized bananas, mashed

3-4 table spoons honey or syrup

Put about 4oz butter into a saucepan and melt with 3-4 tablespoons of honey or syrup if you have it, we haven’t so honey it is for us. Add the mashed bananas and mix thoroughly.

Add the oats and cherries, chopped in half if you can rescue enough from smaller hands that are pinching them for a tasty snack! We had a few chocolate covered raisins left in a bag so they have gone in too. Mix well, everyone can have a stir if they want to! At this point our mixture seemed a little dry so we added about a tablespoon of hot water from the kettle but remember I don’t weigh stuff very often so I go by how it feels. By the way, had we any brown sugar I might have added a tablespoon of that too!

Ours was microwaved for 5 mins on high in an 800w microwave. We used a silicone cake tray thingy that I had put into the cupboard and forgot about (now it’s been discovered, endless ideas are popping into my head). It is about 8 inches square. If I was to cook this by traditional oven I would put in the oven at home on about 180 deg C for about 45 mins. I’m not sure on the conversion but I think that’s about gas 4. You may want to check by a good cookery book or google it.
