Flapjacks are a healthy snack when you need something sweet but don’t want to be reaching for the biscuits! Served warm with some custard, they also make a great dessert.

Ingredients

  • 175g unsalted butter plus extra for greasing
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 40g agave syrup or golden syrup
  • 250g porridge oats (gluten and wheat free)
  • 125g mixed dried fruit (that includes mixed peel if possible)
  • 50g mixture of pumpkin - sunflower and sesame seeds
  • 100g dark chocolate chips – optional but good!
  • Pinch of ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt

Method

Heat oven to 190° C, 170° C fan oven, gas mark 5. Grease and line a shallow 30x35cm baking tin.

Melt the butter, sugar and agave/golden syrup together in a pan over a low heat. Mix together the oats, ginger and a pinch of salt. Stir into the butter mixture, then add all the fruit, seeds and chocolate chip - if using.

Turn into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Cut into squares while still warm, but leave in tray until fully cold and set. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
