Honey Seed Flapjacks
Delicious honey flapjacks packed with the goodness of oats and a mixture of seeds. I like using chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds, but you could add whatever you like. Nice and easy to slice up for school lunches, or enjoy as an energy boosting snack.
Chia seeds are a wholegrain food, packed with essential nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fibre. Sesame seeds are a good source of energy and contain healthy fats like polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega-6. They also help boost energy levels, and contain fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Flaxseeds help provide healthful fat, antioxidants, and fibre. Pumpkin seeds are packed with nutrients that can improve health and fight disease.
- 200g honey
- 200g butter
- 100g white sugar
- 90g brown sugar
- 380g rolled oats
- 70g mixed seeds (Eg chia seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds and pumpkin seeds. You could also use desiccated coconut or dried fruit).
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper (I used a 20cm x 30cm tin).
- In a saucepan, melt the butter, sugars and honey over a low-medium heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted.
- Add the rolled oats and seeds (plus any dried fruit if using). Stir well until the mixture is fully combined.
- Spoon into the prepared tin, pressing down well with the back of a spoon. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden all over. (Check the edges don’t get too dark – if they start to, then cover with tin foil).
- Leave to cool in tin, then lift out on the paper and cut into slices.
