fraggle I'll see if I still have the reciepe for Weight Watchers Breakfast bars cos they were good. (don't hold your breathe though!)
V-rap and Benz are good in the kitchen they might know!

off the top of my head the WW ones had oats, vanilla essence, small (very) amount of fat, egg, milk powder and fruit - I used apple!
Froze really well too!!

i'm off looking now

A lot of the flapjacks I've seen are surprisingly fatty too - last one I looked at was something like 500 calories and 29g of fat per 100.

OK can't find old WW booklets so must have chucked those but exploring other avenues as you have now got me thinking and that is BAD!

Fraggle - the apricot or plum flapjack recipe in Delia How to Cook (I think, like Benz, that it is Book 2) is awesome. Not at all healthy - much butter, sugar - but v delicious.

"1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese (2 protein)
1/4 cup egg substitute or 2 egg whites (1 protein)
1/2 cup Water
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini (3 Fat)
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
2/3 cup Oatmeal (2 carbo)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Toppings:
1/2 cup Blueberries/mashed (1 carbo)
or
2 teaspoons maple syrup (1 carbo)
or
1/3 cup apple sauce (1 carbo)

In a food processor or with hand mixer, blend cottage cheese, egg substitute, water, vanilla and tahini until smooth.

Add oatmeal and baking powder and pulse (or stir by hand) until incorporated.

Batter will be thin at first, but will thicken if left to stand.

Cook on a 350-degree griddle or very hot pan (both will need a light coating of oil spray) on stove top.

Makes 6-7 thin (delicious) "zonecakes."

er I guess you could mix the fruit into the batter and maybe use more oatmeal

no idea what tahini is but will look when this computer speeds up

If you look on http://www.deliaonline.com/ there are plenty of snack like receipies that are not to fatty and taste good. Includes lots of the receipes from Delia's books as well.

Some Weight watcher receipes as well.

Hope this helps you and anyone else.

there should be a space between the web address and the word 'there'

Here is the address again

tahini = ground paste of sesame seeds
used in humus

I guess some of you knew that

so all in all looks like healthy recipe - and any fat is mono-unsatturated

Chop them down and put them on the fire, Fraggle. That'll get rid of them.

Hee hee.... sorry! I think a little NY hysteria has got the better of me! :-)
