One of my favourite things about Christmas baking is all the delicious spices, these lovely ginger flapjacks are a great example of how we can take the plain, and transform it into a seasonal delight. Just by adding some cinnamon and ginger they become christmassy and delicious. Ginger is such a lovely winter warmer and these flapjacks have the perfect amount of stem ginger so even toddlers enjoy them and don’t find it overpowering.
If you prefer other seasonal spices like cloves and nutmeg give them a go and make these flapjacks your own – playing with the flavours your family favours. I’d love to know what worked for you and how you played with the recipe below.
Flapjacks are so simple to make my son has been baking them since he was a tot! They create minimal washing up, and provide pretty instantaneous gratification. They are really adaptable for free-from baking, as they are essentially flour-free, and you won’t miss the butter I promise – especially when you have the wonderful warming hit of cinnamon and ginger in the mix. They end up being not so bad for you too – with the gluten-free oats providing great slow release of energy through the day.
