Sweet treats are a must have in this house. My husband Howard, son Ted and I all have a sweet tooth. Even though I have cut out refined sugars and processed foods I still occasionally have a sweet craving. So there is normally a biscuit or cake that’s been made by me somewhere in our home. These flapjacks are one of our favourite snacks. They are great to make with children and can be enjoyed as a breakfast, snack time or as part of a larger meal. We like them that much I’m going to show you how to make them in the video link below and the blog post is under the photo too.

Salted Caramel and Pecan Flapjacks are a delicious treat that the whole family can enjoy. They are delicious with a nice cup of tea or coffee as a mid morning or afternoon snack. These flapjacks could also be enjoyed as a lunch or after dinner treat too or maybe even as an on the go breakfast. All the ingredients in this dish are freezable so they could be frozen and eaten later. My little family really enjoyed them and they didn’t last long in our house. However you decide to eat these flapjacks, as always, enjoy.
