I don't have breakfast during the working week, so a banana, flapjack and coffee are what gets me to lunch on a working day and today was no different.
I make flapjacks all the time and vary them wit different dried fruit or fresh seasonal fruit. Recently its been strawberry flapjacks with strawberries from the garden, but I wanted to experiment a little.
Turmeric seems to be trendy at the moment, so I thought I would chuck a teaspoon into my flapjacks just for a change. Not only were the oats a golden autumn yellow, the turmeric also imparted its flavour and that was okay with me as I don't mind turmeric, but D was not overly keen on having these particular ones for his breakfast, saying that his preference was the other ones I usually make. He thought these were more suited for a snack.
These Turmeric Flapjacks are so easy to make vegan, just replace the butter with a vegan alternative. Just be careful not to overcook them or under cook them.
