Valentines Treats Recipe

Hello There !

So with valentines day just around the corner , there love chocolate everywhere ! It's brilliant being in love and eating tonnes of chocolate on valentines day but It's important to remember to practise a little self love over this loved up season. One way to practise self love and increase your physical wellbeing is to make yourself some delicious valentines day treats that won't leave you feeling bloated and in desperate need of an intensive workout ! So here's how to make Cranberry FlapJacks .



Step One : Weigh out 125g of sunflower spread, 100g of soft dark sugar and 3/4 ( depending on how much of the syrup you ate off the spoon , I know you did ! )  table spoons of golden syrup, into a bowl .

Step Two : Boil some water in the kettle and fill about a third of a sauce pan with it and put in on the stove to heat with the bowl resting on top of the sauce pan .

Step Three : Stir until the sugar has melted and the mixture is smooth and golden brown

Step Four : Weigh out 250g of rolled oats and add them to the mixture about 2/3 table spoons at a time ,mixing them in as you go




Step Five : I could probably say weigh out some dried cranberries about now .. but if I'm honest I just threw them in until there was enough to suit my taste ! But if you want a measurement , about 3 tablespoons :)



Step Six : Grease a baking tray and the grease the inside of a heart shaped cookie cutter.

Step Seven : Place you cookie cutter on the baking tray and spoon in the flapjack mixture and once it's filled up , slowly lift up the cookie cutter and the flapjack mixture holds the shape !

Step Eight : Repeat this with the rest of the mixture

Step Nine : Place the baking tray in the oven at about 180 C for 15 minutes

Step Ten : Take out , leave to cool ( If you're more patient than me ) and enjoy !





 YOU deserve your love this valentine day so why not try this super yummy gluten and diary free flapjacks and maybe pack them up in a box and enjoy when on a self date ! You could even go on a lovely picnic with them . Alternatively , box them up with a bow and give them as gift to a loved one ! These are especially perfect for those who are diary intolerant and can't enjoy the usual chocolates :) For more easy and delicious, healthy alternatives this valentines day visit Nuts.com  for loads of great ideas !

  1. Those look so yummy! And they come with a good message, too :) People should definitely treat and love themselves - especially if treating yourself doesn't end in regret, haha!

    I don't tend to make healthy snacks, I'm pretty content with fruit and that sort of thing, so I don't really think to actually MAKE things, you know?

  5. These look so good! And they are healthy, so that's a bonus too! I will try these for sure. I love making cookies from unsweetened corn flakes and condensed milk. They taste too good! :)

  13. My partner is allergic to gluten so these would've been the perfect treats to make for him on Valentine's. Since we should show our love every day, I'll just have to make them for no special occasion! ;)
