A delicious raw no-bake flapjack you can throw together in minutes. Make a big batch, slice it up and have it for your sweet snack fix for the week. It's high in complex carbohydrates, protein, fibre, minerals and good fats.
Use a 30cm x 15cm (approx) Baking tray to make your flapjack in.
Coat your tray with a fine coating of oil and line it with clingfilm so that it is easy to take out of your tray once it has set in the fridge. Make sure the clingfilm is slightly over the edges so you can get a good grip when you are trying to get it out.
Take your dates and your raisins and leave them to soak in a bowl of water for between 1-2 hours. This just makes them a lot easier to blend to your paste and makes it a real caramel flavour.
Drain the water from the dates and raisins... place in a blender.
Place your jar of coconut oil into a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes to melt it down to liquid form.
Then add to your blender; your bananas, coconut oil (in liquid form), dates, raisins, cinnamon and salt.
Blend all the above together on full speed until it comes to a super smooth caramel like paste.
Next, add the oats, sesame seeds, chopped hazelnuts, diced figs, chia seeds and flaxseeds into a large bowl and mix in your paste very well into your dry ingredients.
Place the whole mix into your pre-lined flapjack tray and push the mix down into your tray making sure you get it even and into all the corners. Compact it very well.
Place your flapjack into the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
