Breakfast Flapjacks

These easy Breakfast Flapjacks are a doddle to make and are made from just 3 ingredients!

Breakfast Flapjacks

I like to keep things simple. I hate lots of faff when I am cooking and I will make short cuts if I can to save time and lots of paper in the kitchen!

Flapjacks are relatively easy to make aren’t they? Having made flapjacks before using only a handful of ingredients, such as my Mars Bars Flapjacks and my Mince Meat Flapjacks before, I have been wanting to discover if I could make ones using marmalade as the sticky ‘glue’ to hold them together.

When I received this months Degustabox UK delivery, I found a box of Dorset Cereal Ultimate Adventures, and some Good Hemp  Seed Hearts and decided that now would be the time to see if I could make flapjacks using just this cereal along with some butter and marmalade, and then topped with the hemp seeds. 

Well guess what? 

It worked and made some delicious flapjacks that would make a perfect breakfast bar or snack. Using just 3 ingredients no less!

The marmalade adds a lovely tang to the bake, and the hemp seeds some texture.

These are VERY easy to make, and obviously you can just use oats if you do not want to use the Dorset Cereal.

Here is how I made these Breakfast Flapjacks

  1. Such a great idea! I’ve pinned to my things to make board as they are so easy there’s really no reason not to. Also, my kids love flapjack type bars.
