Remember the No Bake Blueberry Flapjacks? Well, I didn’t have any blueberries so I decided to improvise with something wild – the blackberries are ready!
So many blackberries and we only needed a few so we left plenty for others 🙂
And we saw plenty of others enjoying them.
I did sustain a nasty bramble injury – ouch!
But we got what we needed 😉
No-Bake Sugar-Free Apple and Blackberry Flapjacks
4 small apples, peeled and chopped.
Washed, freshly-picked blackberries
Fresh dates, pitted and soaked for 1 hour.
I didn’t measure how many blackberries I had but you can tell from how they look on the plate (it’s a small sandwich plate). The dates weighed 200g before they were pitted and soaked.
Put the apples and blackberries into your food processor together and whiz for a few seconds until well blended.
Then add the dates and thoroughly blend it all together.
Transfer the delicious jammy mixture into a bowl – then lick the spoon – mm mmm 😉
Mix in enough rolled oats to make a stiff mixture
and then transfer to a square tin. Flatten down so that it’s smooth and even. Put in fridge.
Get some lovely vegan organic fair trade chocolate.
Cover your flapjacks.
Put them back into the fridge to set. Done!
These are good! And just so you know what that means coming from me I’ll be honest and say that I don’t normally like blackberries. I so want to like all berries – I love the look and smell of all of them, I love picking them, but blueberries are the only berries I like the taste of. I have previously not even been able to enjoy apple and blackberry pie or crumble with sugar on. Just don’t like ’em.
Until now. These flapjacks are yum. Wholesome, beautiful, wild fruit and I love ’em.
This is quite a momentous occasion for me. I hope you like them too 🙂
