Revisiting End of Summer Roasted Fruit Flapjack for September's Got To Be Gluten Free (#G2BGF)

For those of you who follow Gluten Free Alchemist on Instagram, you will know that I have been away, cruising the Norwegian Fjords with my family. No sooner was I back, than the school term started for Miss GF and I was back to work. Consequently, I am considerably late in posting the linky for this September's Got To Be Gluten Free recipe share. Hopefully you won't be too hard on me.

The Fjords were totally stunning and the cruise outshone all expectations. I will post about our experiences soon, so impressed were we with the ability of the Sapphire Princess staff to meet our gluten free needs. Seriously.... they absolutely had safe gluten free eating sussed and what we wanted, we got! Keep an eye out for a blog post soon.

But for this month's Got To Be Gluten Free, I want to revisit an old favourite recipe of mine... End of Summer Roasted Fruit Flapjack. I first developed this recipe back in September 2013, when I was just 6 months into my blogging journey. Interestingly, it was also the first recipe that I ever shared with a blog link challenge.

Five years on, it is still an amazing recipe. Intensely fruity pieces of roasted berries and plums, dappled through a firmer oatie flapjack, sweetened with a blend of brown sugar, syrup and honey and laced with a hint of cinnamon, these flapjacks sing of warm days leaving us and the impending approach of cooler, misty mornings and falling leaves. You can find the recipe here.

Keeping to a seasonal fruit theme and to help start the party, I am also sharing a delicious Apple Tart recipe from my co-host Rebecca, who blogs over at Glutarama. Made with fresh apples and home-made creme patisserie, they look and sound absolutely divine.

Now all we need is for you, lovely readers, to come join us in sharing your own wonderful gluten free bakes and dishes. We would love to see what you have been cooking up.... whether a new dish or something from the archives. And remember... you don't have to be a gluten free blogger to join in. Anyone is welcome, just as long as your dish is free from gluten....

  1. These flapjacks look absolutely delicious! They are exactly the type I'd love although I rarely make flapjacks as my husband likes really sweet plain ones and I love the ones that are packed with fruit, nuts or seeds. As it's impossible to please both us I end up not making them at all. I'll just have to pinch one of these instead! Thanks so much for sharing them with #CookOnceEatTwice x

    1. Thanks Corina. They are a favourite of mine. So fruity! x

  2. Going on a Nordic holiday sounds very appealing! I've just linked up a gluten free chicken recipe. love your fruity flapjacks!

    1. Norway was absolutely incredible Monika. I would thoroughly recommend it (although Miss GF tells me she is banning holidays that aren't to anywhere hot for a while!).
      Thanks so much for linking up xx

  3. Oh cruising the Norwegian Fjords - how wonderful. I'm not in the least bit jealous, no really! Fantastic that gluten-free was well understood and catered for. As for your flapjacks and tarts, all I can say is yes please.

    1. Thank you Choclette. It has to be one of our most successful holidays on the food front and was fantastic for widening Miss GF's foodie repertoire!
      Your noodles look so tasty! Thanks for linking up x
