Fruity, seedy flapjacks.

Fruity seedy flapjacks.

Flapjacks are a firm favourite in this house. As a snatched breakfast on the way to school, with a mid morning coffee or with a cup of tea or three in the afternoon. I love to add a few hidden extras into my flapjacks. Sometimes it is simply the odds and ends of bags that need to be used up in the baking cupboard. Dar chocolate chips and dried cranberries works well. Chopped apricots and a tsp of dried ginger is delicious too. Today I had a couple of snack bags of fruits, nuts and seeds so I tipped those in. It’s an experiment I’ll be repeating.

Adding in fruit nuts and seeds to flapjacks.

Fruity, seedy flapjacks.

175g butter

175g soft brown sugar

175g golden syrup

100g fruit, nuts and seeds

275g porridge oats.

How to…..

  • Preheat the oven to 150c
  • Line a 6″ by 12″ tin with baking parchment.
  • Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together in a pan over a low heat.
  • Stir in the oats and the fruits, nuts and seeds.
  • Press the mixture into the lined tin.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Cool for five minutes and then mark and cut if possible. Do not leave it until cold as cutting the bars will be almost impossible without a chain saw!
