Mediterranean Flapjacks

Updated: Mar 4, 2021

What the heck is a "flapjack"?

In the United Kingdom, a flapjack refers to a baked bar, cooked in a flat oven tin and cut into rectangles, made from rolled oats, and other ingredients.


They're traditionally sweet.


This one, my friends, is not. It's a savory oat bake filled with zucchini, red pepper, and olive deliciousness that warms your belly, and your heart.


I'd go as far as saying this one is a healthy comfort food. It's perfect for those nights that you want a nourishing cozy meal to fill you up and make your insides happy.


It's full of fiber-rich oats, zucchini, red onion, red peppers, and kalamata olives so you are truly eating the rainbow. It's so important to mix the colors of your veggies to get a balance of all the healthy vitamins and minerals. This is a delicious way to do that.


Plus it's great as leftovers!
