Flapjacks: This is how you make delicious oat sticks from the UK

In the UK, these tasty snacks are called flapjacks, but we can also simply say oat bars. Either way, these things are a real treat. The preparation is not simple, only a few ingredients are needed and the result is simply unbeatable. Whether as an energy supplier, on the go, or for breakfast, homemade flapjacks are pretty good!

And they even have another advantage: Thanks to the oat kernels used, they not only give you pleasure, but also provide you with important ballast and nutrients. In addition to magnesium and zinc, it contains iron and phosphorus. Dried apricots are also little packages of wonder when it comes to fiber. Healthy and tasty? As you can see it works great together.

Speaking of healthy eating: We certainly have a lot to offer. Have you tried any of these recipes yet?

Be sure to try our homemade walnut biscuit or our roasted curried walnuts. We continue to show you such homemade snacks in our “Cook it yourself” section. They have the distinct advantage that you can determine exactly what is included. It’s different with supermarket products: the list of ingredients often has terms that no one understands. And sometimes there are so many that you wonder what such a small snack actually consists of. It’s different with our flapjacks because they only need a handful of ingredients. And so we continue with the recipe.
