New Recipe from John Sheedy

by Martina on January 12, 2012

A great recipe for January – Fruity Flapjacks.  These are ideal for the children’s lunch box or a picnic.

350g medium porridge oats

1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon

80g walnuts roughly chopped

85g raisins

50g dried cranberries

80g dried apricots, chopped small

70g sunflower seeds

25 g pumpkin seeds

200g butter

4 tbsp honey

250g brown sugar

1.  Preheat the oven to 190C.  In a large bowl mix together the oats, cinnamon, walnuts, raisins, cranberries, apricots, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.

2.  Melt the butter and honey in a pan then stir in the sugar until the sugar is fully dissolved.  Bring to the boil and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring until thickened into a smooth sauce.  add half the sauce to the dry ingredients, stir well then add the remaining sauce and stir until fully combined.  spoon the mixture evenly into a baking tray lined with parchment paper, smoothing the surface with the back of a spoon.

3. Bake for 15-18 minutes until caramelised and brown around the edges.  leave to cool in the tin before cutting into square.
