i have to admit that living without an oven is becoming a bit of a drag! in order to get around this little inconvenience, i have started to explore the possibilities of microwave ‘baking’. following my first success – being the vegan mug brownie – i have gained a little more confidence and thought to myself: “why not give microwave biscuits a go?!” – so here are some tasty vegan flapjacks that are easy-peasy to prepare and taste great!
75g vegan margarine
5 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
150g quick-cooking oats
50g dried cranberries, chopped
50g dried apricots, chopped
combine the marg, brown sugar and golden syrup in a microwave safe bowl. cook on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the margarine has melted. add in the oats, sultanas, cranberries + apricots, mix thoroughly to combine.
press the mix into a small greased (microwave safe) baking dish. cook on high for roughly 5 minutes, or until the center is bubbling. allow the flapjacks to cool, cut them into squares, and get stuck in! healthy, vegan, oven-free and delicious!
makes 12 squares
note: you may want to cut up your dried fruit quite finely so the final product is not so crumbly!
