Kids in the Kitchen - Apple Jacks

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen. This week we made Apple Flap Jacks but my little cooks were feeling a little reluctant to help out so I called them Apple Jacks which is a character from My Little Pony. Straight away Boo became more interested to find out more.

Each week on Kids in the Kitchen I invite my readers to come and share their child friendly recipes or whatever their kids have been up to in the kitchen. I then share these posts on Pinterest, Twitter and here on my blog. So please feel free to join in anytime, each linky lasts for one month and you can post as often as you wish. It's all about the sharing.

Last week the Free From Fairy shared some delicious looking Date and Ginger bars which look so simple to make.

Apple Jacks

3oz butter
3oz caster sugar sugar
3oz golden syrup
8oz porridge oats
2 apples

I used porridge oats. Most recipes will ask for rolled oats which are slightly different in texture, but I find that porridge oats work so long as you are not adding too much moisture.

To lessen the moisture we first peeled the apples, cored them and then grated them  into a sieve. 
We then squeezed out as much juice as we could. Boo really enjoyed this job, it's a great job for little people.

melt the butter, golden syrup and sugar in pan over a medium heat
once melted mix in the oats and the apple gratings
put the mixture into a shallow pan lined with greaseproof paper
bake for 20-25 minutes at 180C/gas mark 4
let cool and cut into slices. (makes about 10, depending on how big you cut them)

So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
