Jam Layered Flapjack Bars

This recipe is ideal to make with kids, whatever age – no need to bake, fun to make and the result is absolutely delicious while still being healthy and packed full of energy. If you’re homeschooling use this opportunity as a ‘food tech’ lesson and allow them to munch on them in between breaks! I used Fearne & Rosie’s reduced sugar jam *gifted which made such a tasty, juicy filling in between a flapjack base and topping. Yum! Thanks to my little boy Tom for being my hand model πŸ™‚ He is addicted to these and proof that they get the kid-approved thumbs up!
