Flapjacks anyone!!?? Help required.......

Recommended Posts

As a change from porridge - soak oats, sunflower seeds, raisins in apple or orange juice overnight.


In the morning either eat as it is or add grated apple/other fresh fruit and/or plain yoghurt.


I prefer orange juice as I find apple juice too sweet.


Also goes down well as a dessert or snack!

There is a really sinful and delicious recipe for flapjacks in Two Fat Ladies ride again


175g/6oz demerara sugar

175g/6oz butter

225g/8oz rolled oats

pinch of salt


Melt butter and sugar together and add oats and salt mix well. Pou into a 20 x 30cm/8 x 12in greased tin and press down firmly.


Bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes but keep an eye on it because it will burn easily.


I also put raisins,nuts or anything I feel like in mine and they are the nicest Flapjacks ever like toffee and oats yum yum :lol:

I do have porridge every day! :D


I think I'll make a few batches of flapjacks and put some in the freezer. I add the seeds mix as well Clare. They come in handy when we don't have time to eat properly.


I will also add it to crumble mix - I could make a savoury base and add some sage to the crumble mix.


I'll be glad when the bag is depleted a little and fits in the cupboard :evil::roll:


Thanks for all your suggestions.

we do reindeer food every year, our kids love it, trouble is one of them stayed up so late last year I was sweeping the path at about 2am! We also put glitter footprints by the kids beds, I cut out a footprint shape out of cardboard, shake glitter on to the floor through the shape of two bootprints, they think Santa was standing by their bed in the night! (trouble is you're hoovering it up for WEEKS!) One of my mates at work, when his eldest was starting to "not believe" got us on the night turn to stop outside his house at silly o'clock with a set of bells and shake them outside his sons window! So there was us creeping round his back garden in the dark - lucky we didn't get arrested!

I remember my Pops making hoof prints and boot marks in the snow outside one year... well, I don't remember him doing it - he told me afterwards.


Rosie 'is older' this year, which is really sad. When she was little - she used to love standing outside to see father Christmas come past on hi sleigh drawn but the Round Table tractor, up the street, waving at the children - I got all choked up and still do! I liked helping her to write her letter and put it by the fire.
