Prep time 🕙 - 10 minutes
Cook time 🕒 - 30 minutes

Ingredients 🗒

120g organic gluten-free porridge oats
70g unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp maple syrup (under 12 months)/honey (12 months+)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 Mamamade Sweet Potato, Beetroot and Date Baby Meal, defrosted

Method 👩‍🍳

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 170°c and line a small tin with baking paper.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, add your organic oats, melted butter and honey. Mix together with a wooden spoon till well combined.

Mamamade tip 💡 Keep your little one busy - get them to help with mixing!

Step 3

Stir in your chia seeds and your Mamamade Sweet Potato, Beetroot & Date baby food pouch and mix them together well.

Step 4

Spoon your mixture into your baking tin and pop straight into the oven for 25-30 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they cook - they should be slightly golden in colour once done.

Step 5

When they’re golden brown, remove your tin from the oven and cut the flapjacks into small squares in the tin. Allow them to cool completely in the tin - if you try to take them out while warm they won’t hold their shape. Enjoy!
