Part of this recipe I have taken from Jamie Oliver. A few weeks ago I watched Mr Oliver on the internet making Granola Dust which is absolutely yummy with some yogurt and homemade fruit compote. It is so simple and it is really easy to make. Also it’s so much healthier than the cereal you buy in the supermarket.
My husband loves a flapjack and it’s a great way for me to get nuts into my family’s diet. This recipe is loaded with nuts, chia seeds, raw cacao powder, cacao nibs, desiccated coconut, coconut oil and dried fruit. These are all of the best foods the planet has to offer us and in my opinion we should be eating more of them.
As you can see, these Jamie Jacks are packed full of essential nutrients the body needs for optimum health. The Granola Dust on it on is delicious and if you are wanting to take the dust away this is the perfect opportunity to do it. It’s only a few more steps from the granola and you have yourself a delicious flapjack or Jamie Jack.
