I created these delicious banana, date and blueberry flapjacks very early the other morning for a charity cake sale at work.

They were a bit of a last-minute thing, but they turned out great, way beyond my expectations.

My place of work is a nut free zone, so I needed to make something without nuts, now this is very difficult for me as I add nuts almost everything (for protein, crunch and just because they’re delicious!) so although it pained me to do it, they are completely nut free.

The recipe is an adaptation of my banana flapjack recipe and I’ve added lots of seeds and coconut flakes to make up for the lack of nuts.

I sweetened the flapjacks by blitzing dates to make a date paste instead of maple syrup or honey–I’m not sure what I would do without the amazing medjool date! Such a versatile and delicious ingredient, providing natural gooey sweetness to so many sweet treats.

Anyway, these are really tasty!
