Bake something to delight adventurers

November is time to relish those last few crisp, autumnal outdoor adventures. We challenged Rebecca to create something to delight adventurers young and old.

Rebecca writes about her own adventures on her blog, but what November outings have you got planned? And what yummy snacks would you bake to stay warm? 

Why not share a photo of your creations with us and we’ll feature you in the Trex Family Bakery!

Just post your photo to Instagram using the hashtag #BakingWithTrex.

Nutella Flapjacks!

November is the month for frosty morning walks and woodland adventures, and with a family walk planned for the weekend, I just had to get baking!

Walking and hiking can get tiring, so I wanted to bake something healthy and energetic, yet indulgent, and that’s when I thought of Nutella flapjacks. I have an obsession with Nutella and luckily it’s a treat my nephews love too, making it the perfect choice of snack to take on our woodland adventure.

Ingredients

  • 120g Trex
  • 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 275g rolled oats
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 170°C/Gas mark 5 and line a shallow 20cm-square tin with baking paper in preparation.

Step 2

Throw the Trex, caster sugar and syrup all into a small pan over a low heat and stir the mixture until all of the Trex has melted. Carefully stir in the oats – putting in half at a time and mixing, ensuring the mixture is fully absorbed. Finally (and most importantly) mix in two large dollops of Nutella.

Step 3

Next, evenly pour the mixture into your already lined tin and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden around the edges. 

Step 4

Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before cutting into bars or small “bite-size” portions. Allow your flapjacks to cool completely before serving, and enjoy!

Top Tip!

Use cheap Tupperware dishes and get the kids involved in decorating their own with leaves and autumn colours for carrying their snack around in on the walk. This makes the day even more enjoyable for them!
