Blueberry Flapjacks by Annette Sym

Ingredients (makes 6)


1 x 425g can blueberries

2 egg whites

¼ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon vanilla essence

½ cup skim milk

1 cup self-raising flour

½ teaspoon bicarb soda

cooking spray


Saved juice from canned blueberries

1 tablespoon cornflour



  • Drain blueberries (and save juice from can for sauce)
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, beat egg whites and sugar for one minute
  • Add essence and milk and stir
  • Sift flour and bicarb soda into mixture in one go
  • DO NOT beat gently, but fold flour through until just combined (overbeating makes tough flapjacks!)
  • Gently fold blueberries through batter
  • Coat a non-stick fry pan with cooking spray and pour a little less than half a cup (100ml) of mixture into pan and spread to make a round shape.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes or until brown, then turn and cook for another minute
  • Repeat until all mixture has been used


  • In a small saucepan, combine saved juice and cornflour
  • Stir continuously on medium heat
  • When boiled pour over flapjacks


  • Replace blueberries with 2 cups fresh apple peeled finely diced. Instead of sauce make cinnamon sugar by mixing 3 teaspoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together, sprinkle over flapjacks
  • Omit the sauce to reduce carbohydrate count to 31.2g, 606 kilojoules (144 calories)
