Very sorry for the radio silence coming from the Fodalicious camp over the last couple of months, first came trying to find a new house, then Christmas, then moving and all the jazz that comes along with all of that. Well now that we are just about unpacked in Brockley, I had found some time to cook again! For the last few months I have not been so FODMAP-friendly, and have survived on a diet of Amy’s rice Mac & Cheese, chicken soup, pestopasta and take away. Not ideal! But here we go, back to the discovery of new, tasty, FODMAP meals!

Yesterday I decided to start with the very easy Chocolate Orange Flapjacks as that was just what I was in the mood for!

Ingredients

  • 4tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g dairy-free spread/butter/margarine
  • 250g oats
  • 75g sugar
  • 50g gluten-free flour
  • 50g dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • grated zest of one orange

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190
  2. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Add the golden syrup and dairy-free spread/butter to a pan and heat until the butter is melted.
  4. Add the grated orange zest and allow to infuse for a minute or so
  5. Add the remaining ingredients, other than the chocolate, to the pan and stir
  6. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add the chopped chocolate and stir – I add this at the end so that there are areas of the flapjacks that are very chocolatey and other bits that are not – if you want them to be totally chocolatey add the chocolate at the same time as the orange zest and allow to melt before adding the rest of the ingredients
  7. Put the mixture into the lined baking tray and even out using the back of a spoon
  8. Bake in the oven at 190 for 15-20 mins
