Quinoa & Apple Flapjacks (no added sugar)

This an improved version of one of my first ever recipe videos. They're made with all natural ingredients and sweetened with apple juice and dried fruit. Easy and cheap to make and great to take to work or keep with you when you need a snack out and about. Full of fiber, protein, antioxidants, omega 3 and minerals.
Course: Snack, sweet treat
Keyword: quiona, sugar free


  • 200 g oats
  • 150 g quinoa cooked ( I used a precooked pack)
  • 1 apple diced into small chunks
  • pinch of sea/pink salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 75 g dried fruit Use fruit of your choice
  • 30 g chia seeds
  • 450 ml apple juice


  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl and allow to soak for 10 minutes. Spread evenly into a greased/lined baking tin and press down. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool for 20 minutes on a wire rack. Turn the tray upside down (with a chopping board on top) and tip out the flapjack. Cut into rectangles and let cool fully before storing in a tin or plastic tub. wrap with parchment paper or kitchen towel to stop them absorbing too much moisture.



TIP: I added goldenberries as my dried fruit option in this video. Other times I've added sultanas, cranberries and goji berries. You can add your favourite dried fruit each time you make them.
