Welcome back everyone (I know it has been quite a while since I last posted something on here!) but it has been a very busy first week back in Nottingham! What better way to recover from those nights out or just to start pretending that flapjacks must be healthy (they contain oats and apricots!).
So here it goes:
150g soft margarine
150g soft light brown sugar aka muscovado
2tbsp golden syrup
200g rolled oats
50g walnuts, chopped
50g dried apricots, chopped
I know I usually provide a photo of this but I managed to forget this time! It is all quite self explanatory though 🙂 but here is a picture of some chopped apricots and walnuts.
Preheat your oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Lightly grease a baking tin (it can be whatever size you have really, square, rectangular or circle!) and line with greaseproof paper.
Next put the soft margarine. sugar and golden syrup in a medium sized saucepan and heat slowly until the butter has melted. Stir this continuously while on the heat, to avoid it burning.
Remove from the heat and stir in the oats, walnuts and apricots until thoroughly combined.
Spread evenly into your baking tray and place on the middle shelf of the oven.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the top looks golden (it will still look squishy but this is good, don’t over cooked it otherwise it will be dry!).
Cut into squares/bars and enjoy 🙂 Also you could always try some different flavour combinations, maybe try adding the zest and juice of an orange with sultanas or using different dried fruit and nuts.
