RECIPE: Mango flapjacks topped with toasted almonds

Makes: 18


For the flapjacks

190g cake flour

30ml castor sugar

3ml baking powder

Pinch of salt

2 large eggs

30ml butter, melted

300ml buttermilk

300g fresh mango, peeled, pitted, and finely diced

For the topping

250ml coconut yoghurt, or any other flavoured yoghurt you desire

Honey, to serve

60ml toasted sliced almonds, to serve

1 lemon, cut into wedges to serve


In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs, butter and buttermilk, and whisk together until well combined and lump free. Mix the diced mangoes into the batter.

Spray a large frying pan with a non-stick spray and heat over medium heat. Spoon 30ml of batter into the frying pan and when bubbles appear on the surface, flip them over and continue to cook for a further minute. Remove and keep warm until all the batter is used.

Serve the flapjacks with yoghurt, honey, almonds and lemon.
