Power Boost Flapjacks

13 Feb

I’ve been a bit under the weather recently and feeling quite sorry for myself. As a result, I’ve resorted to cooking and eating healthy but comforting meals and treats.

Today I made power boost flapjacks. Nutritious and delicious!DSCN1030

100g butter

50g maple syrup

50g honey

50g golden syrup

75g soft brown sugar

300g oats

75g plain flour

100g raisins

the juice of one orange

25g sesame seeds

25g pine nuts

a handful of brazil nuts, and a handful of pecans, both chopped

2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line a baking tin.

2. Lightly toast the seeds and pine nuts in a dry frying pan for a few mins.

3. Soak the raisins in the orange juice and heat on the hob for 5 mins, until the juice starts to be soaked up.

4. Combine the butter, honey, syrups and sugar in a pan and heat until fully melted.

5. Mix the oats, flour and cinnamon together in a bowl, and add the pecans, brazils, toasted pine nuts and sesame seeds.

6. Mix the bowl of dry ingredients in with the melted butter mix, and then mix in the raisins.

7. Transfer over to the baking tin and make sure the mix is quite level and pressed into the edges and corners. Cook for 20ish minutes, until the flapjacks are as golden as you would like. You’ll know they’re ready because you’ll get that gorgeous aroma of sweet, toasted oats and oranges floating through the kitchen. Ohh the flapjacky goodness!

And you’re done! Let them cool completely before removing from the tin (I know it’s tempting) otherwise they will crumble, as the butter mix won’t have set yet.

As I was trying to cheer myself up, I dipped them in chocolate after letting them cool and cutting them up! It worked!

This recipe made 14 squares, but sadly some of them perished before I had opportunity to take a picture….
