Teff and Date Flapjack Traybake

Makes 1 traybake (12 squares)

A naturally sweet date layer is baked into the middle of this flapjack traybake. We used coconut oil and maple syrup but you can swap these for dairy or vegan butter and golden syrup

Free from Gluten, Egg, Soya

  1. Roughly chop the dates into a saucepan, add the boiling water, cover and bring to the boil. Gently simmer for 3 minutes then remove from the heat.
  2. Pre-heat the oven.
  3. Rub a little oil around the inside of an 20cm/8” square baking tray.
  4. Measure the oats, teff flour, ground almonds, coconut oil, maple syrup and water into a mixing bowl and mix to make lumpy breadcrumbs.
  5. Tip half the mixture into the prepared tray, spreading it out evenly and press flat.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Mash the dates with a fork.
  8. Remove the tray from the oven and spread the date mash evenly over the base.
  9. Spread the topping evenly over the date paste and gently pat it down.
  10. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven and, while still warm, slice into squares and leave to cool in the tin.
  12. When cold slice again, remove the squares from the dish and store in a tin.

Very healthy snack (!). Teff flour inobtrusive. Quick to make - I add ground ginger to offset the sweetness of the dates.

I love this it's like sticky toffee pudding and crumble, all in one, it turned out exactly like the picture and I love the flavour the teff flour gives the cake quite nutty
