A few weeks ago I mentioned how I was looking to buy Farro for my Tuscan Bean Soup recipe and bought what I thought looked like Farro (packaging all in Italian) but ended up with puffed spelt. When I opened the pack I was a little disappointed but quite excited as it looked like Sugar Puffs which was a favourite breakfast cereal that I had when I was a kid. Obviously this lovely puffed spelt had not been sweetened and so it left me to do what I wanted with it.

Last week I had a flop making flapjacks which obviously use oats but I thought I would use a basic flapjack recipe and use my puffed spelt instead. Since I have made them it is almost impossible to stop eating them. They are so sweet and yummy and just like eating sugar puffs in a bowl.

I also made these flapjacks without using any refined sugar to keep them relatively healthy. They are the perfect snack for mid afternoon when the sugar crash starts to happen and you just need a little pick me up. These little bars/cakes are also really easy to make and would be perfect to make with kids when you are doing a bit of family baking.
