Three Minute Flapjacks

Microwaves often get a lot of slack. I agree that ‘microwave ready meals’ are not a great thing, although I admit I turn to them sometimes. But, a microwave can actually be a great thing and can be used to prepare ‘real’ food also. When I house-shared, all I had was a microwave for 2 years and maintained a healthy, nutritious diet.

Anyway, who can hate a microwave when they can give you lovely, warm, chewy, fruity flapjacks in three minutes?!

Ingredients:

85g vegan margarine

2tbsp golden syrup

85g soft brown sugar

150g oats

135g dried fruit, chopped if large (e.g raisins, dried apricots etc)

Method:

  • Melt the margarine, syrup and sugar together in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir then mix in the remaining ingredients until combined.
  • Place into a suitable dish such as a 20cm round shallow dish, lined with greasproof paper,  press to smooth and microwave for 3 minutes until bubbling. I used these small heart dishes and reduced the time to 2 minutes which was plenty time for this size.
  • Leave to cool completely before cutting into slices.
