finally, finally, finally, after these years of living in UK i have made my own flapjacks – popular sweet snack made from oats, golden syrup, butter and sugar. As always, original/ standard recipe was for information only as i could not resist temptation to improvise a bit. and, here you go – flapjacks with loads of seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame seeds) and dried cranberries. Healthy and delicious!
140g brown sugar, 100g honey, 100 g butter, 40g golden syrup, 100g tahini sauce, 100g sesame seeds, 80g sunflower seeds, 80g pumpkin seeds, 80g jumbo oats, 80g porridge oats, 70g dried cranberries.
1 Preheat the oven to 175C. Melt the butter, sugar, honey and golden syrup together in a pot over a moderate heat, then take off the heat and whisk in the tahini.
2 Place the remaining ingredients together in a bowl and mix well, then pour over the warm liquids and thoroughly mix again.
3 Press the mixture well into oiled baking tray and bake for 20 minutes or so until bubbling and golden.
4 Take out of the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes, slice and leave to cool completely.
