Toffee with Oats (Healithier -ish) Flapjacks


Melt butter, sugar, and treacle in a pan.
Be watchful as it reaches it nice brown colouring, at this stage move fast before the syrup burns, Also here people have their preference how "burnt" they like their toffee.  I like mine just on the border, between almost too burnt but not quite with that full on flavour.  I don't like my pale toffee. 

Nuts are great! for that extra crunch.

Fruit Crumble - Gluten Free

Coconut (desiccated)
Rolled Oats

Green Apples


Coconut (desiccated)
Butter - melted
Honey - warmed for easier mixing
Rolled Oats
GF Breadcrumbs

Mix 'n' match for the topping, the above ingredients according to what you have, what you like, or simply what you feel like at the moment.  Set aside.

Prepare the filling.
Cube the apples ( l like without skin)
Toss 2 tbsp of cornflour as the fruit bakes, this makes a nice thick syrup and not a runny sauce.
(I do this in a bag and shake for easier cleanup.

Empty in an oven dish, sprinkle the topping.  Optional sprinkle some sugar and cornflakes on top for extra sweetness.

Bake in 200c until brown.
The cornflakes and walnuts added a fabulous crunch to the topping
