Day 18

I have been AWOL...Oops!I had a few niggly things going on last week, all sorted now and it is a new week and the sun is shining! Spring and Summer are difinitely on their way. Our clocks go forward at the end of March.

I had to colour my hair this morning, BOY! Did it need it!...The old natural blonde was a shining as bright as the sun today, well, grey but I call it my natural blonde...teehee. All done now!

I made Flapjacks last night...I know...BUT HEY! Don't flap....they are RAW Flapjacks and taste exactly like Flapjacks...UN...BEL...IEV...A..BLE! I have put the recipe below. No! It isn't my recipe.

Flapjacks - Kate Wood
300g/10oz Oats, soaked 8-12 hours
4Tb Agave Nectar
4Tb Plive Oil
4Tb Water
120g/4oz Raisins

Put everything except the raisins into the blender.
Blend to a porridge (you can eat it like this for breakfast if you want!)
Stir in the raisins by hand.
Spread onto a dehydrator tray lined with teflex, about 2cm/1in thick.
Dry for 12 hours then score into squares, four by five, or possibly five by five if you want to make smaller flapjacks.
Flip over and dry for a further six hours.
Store in an airtight container. Will keep for up to two weeks.

2Tb Carob Powder
2Tb Goji Berries, soaked 1-2 hrs
2Tb Bee Pollen
2Tb Maca Powder
2Tb Fresh Dates instead of Agave
1Tb Cinnamon or Mixed SpicE
2cm 1inch Fresh Root Ginger
10 Drops Orange Oil

I didn't add the raisins but what I did add was 2Tb Lucuma to my mixture...YUM!
When I had spread the mixture onto the teflex some of it was thicker in parts than other parts so I have to say, not to make them quite as thick as suggested in the recipe as the thicker parts seemed to be a tad soggy-ish in the middle after dehydration, whereas when I made them slightly thinner they were dried in the middle...PERFECT!

If you make these let me know if they taste like flapjacks, they certainly do to me!!
