Easy and Healthy Muesli Flapjack
Flapjack is an easy and healthy tray-bake. This one is muesli-style based and comes packed with nutrition, a little honey, and a little brown sugar.
- Serves: 8 persons
- 1cup medium porridge oats
- 3cups nuts and seeds
- 1cup dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, sultanas)
- 8tablespoons honey (runny)
- 1ounce dark brown sugar
- 4ounces unsalted butter
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Heat a large deep pan on the stove. Add the oats, nuts, and seed combination (do not add any fruit) and cook for 5 minutes, constantly stirring to toast the ingredients. Take care not to burn. The mixture should just be golden brown.
Step 3Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
Step 4Place the honey, dark brown sugar, and butter into a saucepan. Melt, these together on medium heat, to completely dissolve the sugar.
Step 5Cook for a further 5 minutes on low heat, again, taking care not to burn. Turn off the heat and keep to one side.
Step 6Mix the toasted ingredients with the melted butter mixture and the fruit to form a stiffish dough.
Step 7Grease an 8- x 8-inch square cake tin and line the bottom with a sheet of baking paper. Press the flapjack mixture firmly and evenly into the tin making sure to get into the corners.
Step 8Cut out squares and rectangles in the flapjack, then place the tin in the fridge and leave for a couple of hours to set.
Step 9The flapjack keeps well in an airtight tin. Enjoy!
