Marmalade Flapjacks

As a tribute to Michael Bond, the creator and author of the Paddington Bear books, who sadly died aged 91 last week, I’ve created these marmalade sandwich inspired flapjacks.

These cute honey flapjack triangles can be stacked up sandwich stylee or enjoyed as an open sandwich topped with lashings of homemade marmalade. And yes, if you really can’t be bothered to make the marmalade of course you can use the stuff at the shops, but it won’t be as tasty….FACT!

What’s In It?

  • 50og Porridge Oats
  • 200g Unsalted Butter
  • 200ml Honey
  • 1/2 portion of Healthy Orange Marmalade
  • Juice and Peel of 1 Orange
  • 2 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 50g Dark Chocolate

How Do I Make It?

To make the flapjacks, simply melt the butter and honey in a saucepan, then remove from the heat and stir in the oats. Tip the mixture into a shallow baking tin and bake on a low heat for 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Cut into triangles and then allow to cool completely whilst still in the tin.

While the flapjacks are cooling you can make the chocolate dipped orange peel. Cut the peel into thin slivers then put into a saucepan along with the orange juice and coconut sugar. Heat gently for about 10 minutes, or until the syrup has caramelised and the peel has softened. Drain and allow to cool. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and once the peel has cooled, dip one end into the chocolate to cover. Place on a sheet of greaseproof paper before popping into the freezer for a few minutes to set.

When the flapjacks have completely cooled, remove from the tin (you may need to go over them again with a knife) and spread them with a thick layer of marmalade (you can find the marmalade recipe here). Top with the chocolate dipped orange peel and dig in!
