Rustic, foolproof and full of “the good stuff”.
Flapjacks are kinda weird: somewhere between cookie and müsli-bar. Delicious, easy to make and surprisingly satiating. Don’t be fooled by all the “healthy” ingredients like oats, fruits, nuts and honey, they still are what they are, a sweet treat totally worth the calories, but still having quite some calories. Sorry, I just hate it when sweets are labeled “healthy” and then marketed any calorie free. Anyways, enjoy these flapjack cookies, they are simply amazing!

An Italian classic with a little Asian twist. Give it a try!
