Flapjack ingredients in food processor

Dry ingredients ready to be blitzed!

I found the Little Grazers website in a moment of panic. My youngest threatened a hunger strike unless she could feed herself. I practically backflipped for joy when my frenzied search for baby-led weaning recipes delivered me the Little Grazers site. It is packed to the rafters of great, healthy bite-sized recipes so it quickly became bit a fail safe resource for me when planning meals.

These flapjacks are my take on Little Grazer’s apricot flapjacks . Mr F was the first one to make these and I can testify they were thoroughly delicious.  The original recipe was a bit too crumbly so I added a little more pineapple juice to mine along with some chunks of 70% dark chocolate and some  pecans. I used coconut oil instead of butter – the pineapple juice and coconut combo is a winner in my book.
