Bite Size Flapjacks using Sweet Freedom Syrup

I was recently sent some Sweet Freedom Syrup to experiment with. Sweet Freedom is a completely natural product made 100% from fruit (apples, carob and grapes) and has fewer calories than sugar- so you could argue it is super healthy. Unfortunately as I teamed it with copious amounts of butter, I'm afraid all the good work is probably cancelled out. Nevertheless the flapjacks tasted amazing and not even hubby could detect any difference in flavour. A useful product for diabetics and those wanting to cut calories and refined sugars from their diets.

  1. They look delicious. I bet the syrip helped them stay lovely and soft

  2. They do look delicious. Great to hear of a new product on the market like this.

  3. I fancy using this on my morning porridge. I usually have maple syrup (marginally healthier than sugar). Where can you buy it? How much does it cost?

  4. I'm sure it's still a healthy snack in comparison to most snacks! :) Is that little mouths on the bottles, underneath the labels? Kind of creepy haha but the product looks interesting :)
