January is notoriously one of the healthiest months, simply because we’ve overindulged so much during December we’re all desperately crying out for a bit of green healthy goodness the minute the new year starts. The thing is come mid January many of us start to get bored with the new healthy eating regime and that’s when things start to go wrong. A little dip into the biscuit tin every now and again turns into a whole packet of Hobnobs (I’ve even been known to lick the last of the crumbs out things have got that bad!). Well I’ve got the solution with these delicious Seeded Flapjacks. With plenty of healthy seeds, oats to fill you up, dates to satisfy your sweet tooth and honey instead of any of that refined sugar rubbish, these are just the treats to get you through those peckish moments….. just don’t go eating them all at once!
What’s In It?
- 300g Oats
- 200g Unsalted Butter
- 200ml Honey
- 75g Chopped Dates
- 50g Pumpkin Seeds
- 50g Sunflower Seeds
- 2 tbsp Sesame Seeds
How Do I Make It?
Melt the butter and honey together in a saucepan and when the last of the butter has melted, stir in the chopped dates, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Stir for 5 minutes on low and then remove from the heat.
Add the oats and stir together making sure everything is well combined.
Compact into a rectangular baking tin and scatter the sesame seeds all over the top.
Bake in a moderate oven for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cut into small bars, making sure to leave in the tin to cool completely.
Once cool, go over the lines again with a sharp knife and remove carefully with a flat knife.
