Are you looking for a healthy snack idea that tastes great? How about one that even gets some superfoods into your child? We love this easy superfood flapjack recipe that is delicious, filling and sure to be enjoyed by kids!

Flapjacks always remind me of cooking with my mother when I was a child, and I really love this recipe for how authentic it is.

The addition of mixed dried fruits and various seeds, along with the oats, means that they are essentially a power bar. If you’re stuck on a busy morning, they are just as nourishing as a bowl of cereal, or alternatively are a good after-school boost before settling down to homework.
