Cherry, Almond and White Chocolate Flapjacks

Cherry, Almond and White Chocolate Flapjacks

Don’t you just love flapjacks, they are so easy to make and taste great. I don’t often have the time to bake midweek, but it didn’t take me long at all to dig out the ingredients from my store cupboard and make these flapjacks.

I was so glad I did as my cherry, almond and white chocolate flapjacks went down very well the next day with my kids and my colleagues at work!

I always think that flapjacks are a delicious bake to make and share. I always have a bag of rolled oats in the cupboard for porridge and overnight oats so it was a lovely treat to make flapjacks with them.

These cherry, almond and white chocolate flapjacks have a delicious combination of juicy glacé cherries, chunks of white chocolate, and I have also added ground almonds which add a delicious nutty flavour. Of course you could also use flaked almonds or chopped whole almonds too.

It’s a lovely surprise when eating these when you find a chunk of chocolate nestling inside or a piece of cherry.

My favourite part of flapjacks are the crispy dark bits you get round the edges. How about you?

One of the reasons I took these into work was to stop myself from demolishing the lot!

What are British Flapjacks

A quick note to my readers! If you are reading this and are from the USA then flapjack might mean something else to you, a pancake.

Here in the UK, flapjacks are a traditional traybake made with oats, butter, golden syrup, and sugar, as you can see, similar to granola bars.

We enjoy then as a tasty baked treat. Why not try them out.

Fantastic combination of flavours in those flapjacks! Thank you for entering these into Treat Petite x

These sound gorgeous Lucy. I’m a big flapjack fan, but have never tried this particular combination before. Your work colleagues must love you. Thanks for sharing with We Should Cocoa.

I’m running a bit behind this month due to my advent calendar, but the round-up and new linky should be up later today.
