Chocolate, Nut & Honey Flapjacks

Flapjacks, Speedy, Traybakes | 23rd August 2009 | By

Have made these flapjacks two days running now. Yesterday, some energy bars were needed to feed the workers and today we are off on a picnic – hummm – weather looking decidedly drizzly, so might end up as a picnic in the car! Plans set in motion now, so proceed we will, rain or no rain.

  • Melted 5oz unsalted butter with 2 tbsp runny honey in a large pan.
  • To this mixed in: 8oz rolled oats, pinch of salt, 2.5oz demerara sugar, 2oz mixed chopped nuts and 50g of dark chocolate cut into chunks.
  • Spread this into a buttered 8” by 10” baking tin and baked for 17 mins at 180°C (gas 4).
  • Left to go cold then cut into 12 squares.
Again I used my standard flapjack recipe from Gaia’s Kitchen and modified it, substituting honey for the syr
up and adding nuts and chocolate. The result was very satisfying – hence the making of a 2nd batch early this morning. Having little chunks of chocolate was a great addition and doing it this way didn’t overwhelm the taste of honey. With the 2nd batch I remembered to use my signature sesame seeds sprinkled over the top.

    Another change I can make to my flapjack recipe. Honey and walnuts, two of my favourite ingredients.
