Cranberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks - Simple Bakes



Cranberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks


What a lovely bake to kick start off Sweet and Simple Bakes. The recipe is posted on Sweet and Simple Bakes and ready for you to view and to go forth and multiply with baking these scrummy flapjacks.

I adore chocolate any shape or form and with cranberries they make a perfect partner for these delightful flapjacks. They are excellent for lunch boxes should they last long enough from baking to ever making the lunch box that is!



Cranberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks


I haven’t baked flapjacks for years and it was truly like coming home to an old friend baking them. I find it therapeutic melting and stirring mixtures and this really is what flapjacks is all about before baking them off in the oven in a prepared lined baking tin. Adding a little melted white chocolate drizzled over the top for that finishing touch, who could resist such sheer pleasures?

My hubby found them very Moorish indeed so be warned, I can visualise a Cranberry & White Chocolate flapjack habit taking place in blogsphere *giggle*

I couldn't have said it better and it's great to have you back sweetie! I know what you mean about addictive it was a wonderful bake to start with!

Antonia said...

These look delicious. I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to flapjacks: I've used the same recipe always. It has the title 'Mummy's Flapjacks' in my recipe binder and has just four ingredients! This version could almost persuade me to break the mould though.
Hope your back is less painful and you are on the mend.

Great to see you back Rosie! No wonder these will dissapear in seconds!

Bellini Valli said...

This looks like it will be a fun and productive activity for you ladies.Flapjacks sound like what we call granola bars...although they may be slightly different. Here flapjacks are pancakes. They are supposed to be a thinner pancake but depending on the restaurant Flapjack is a generic name. I like the sounds of your Flapjacks better:D

farida said...

these look yummy! i wouldn't mind a piece:) unfortunately i wont' be able to join SB this month, but will try to try out next months recipe. great initiative!

Gigi said...

Your flapjacks sound like the perfect snack for when I am at school. Sometimes between classes I just don't have time to have lunch. These sound like they would hold me over until dinner.

It would be fun to keep a collection of cultural differences and create a "bloggers" dictionary. I'm making these this weekend and I'm not sure if they're going to be pancakes or granola bars :)

Emiline said...

Ahh, flapjacks. I love a good pancake!

Just kidding. These look terrific. I always love that cranberry white chocolate combo.

Retno Prihadana said...

Hmmm look really nice and delicious as snacks! Rosie, your putting up event end on May 21st? I´d like to participate.

These look wicked Rosie, and cranberry and white chocolate is a great combination.

nicisme said...

Nice addition to the flapjacks with the cranberry and white choc!

Lina said...

mmmmmm looks great! I've never had flapjacks before. I always imagined that they were the same things as pancakes but I guess I was wrong..?

Kevin said...

I like the sound of flapjacks with cranberries and white chocolate.
