Easy and tasty and great with tea
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.

  • Step 1

    Heat oven to 180C or 350F or Gas mark 4

  • Step 2

    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.

  • Step 3

    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

  • Step 4

    Add all the other ingredients and mix well

  • Step 5

    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)

  • Step 6

    Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes – mine was in for 20 and came out crunchy

  • Step 7

    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
