Since I am trying to eat more healthily, I was looking around to see if there was a recipe for something that was tasty and high in complex carbs to help me feel fuller for longer. Since I couldn't find what I wanted I thought I'd go for flapjack which is none of those things but very tasty
This is the basic recipe but I think that it is very flexible and you should be able to change things or add whatever you have to hand. I used only 110g of oats and was a bit hard, bumping up the oats to 150g should over come that
For this you'll also need a pan to mix and cook stuff in and a tray to bake the flapjack in.
Heat oven to 180C or 350F or Gas mark 4
Line a small baking tray with greaseproof paper, or grease a non-stick pan. Basically you need something to cook it in. My tray was about 23cm square and too big so something smaller than that would be good.
Melt the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a pan together over a low heat. You want it nicely mixed and runny but not boiling
Add all the other ingredients and mix well
Turn into the tray and level out pushing the mixture down with the back of a spoon or you could use a potato masher (I used a spoon)
Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes â€“ mine was in for 20 and came out crunchy
Leave to cool for a short while in the tray then lift out with the lining paper (if you used it) and mark out the slices, I did 16. Leave on a flat surface until cold.
Then eat with a nice mug of tea
