Apple and Mincemeat Flapjacks

I love flapjacks and there is nothing quite like a seasonal flapjack to capture the flavours of the season. A couple of weeks ago I shared a Cherry and Mincemeat Flapjack recipe and this week I thought I’d share an Apple and Mincemeat Flapjack recipe, both of which are variations on our original mincemeat flapjack recipe and a great way to use up leftover mincemeat.

Why should we make an Apple and Mincemeat Flapjack?

Aside from being a great way of using up mincemeat, this flapjack is so full of flavour and a flavour combination that most people will like. It’s a great easy festive alternative to mince pies and such a lovely sweet treat to enjoy around Christmas.
