A Fab Snack for Runners – Fruity Flapjacks

Fruity flapjacks are tasty any time! These are simple, cheap, and quick to make with the possibility of endless variations. Try with other dried fruit and nuts? Or leave them out and dip in melted choc once they’ve cooled a little? So many choices.

I made these for what should be called #runningclubcakefest2017 and they went down a treat. I managed to bring none home with me!

Given them a try and let you know if you do a variation on this.
