My Super Seedy Flapjacks

My Super Seedy Flapjacks

Sunday afternoons in my house are about doing a bit of food preparation for the week ahead.  So I thought it would be a great opportunity to try out this recipe I found during the week.


150g unsalted butter

125g brown sugar

3 tablespoons of golden syrup

Lemon juice

75g seasame seeds

50g sunflower seeds

50g pumpkin seeds

200g porridge oats


  1. Cut the butter into squares and melt it with the maple syrup, lemon juice and sugar over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved.

2. Remove from the heat and mix in all the seeds and oats together until all the oats are covered with the liquid.

3. Prepare a baking tin with grease proof paper and spoon the mixture into it. Using the base of the spoon, press the mixture into the tin to pack it together.


4. Bake in a preheated oven (160C) for 20-25 minutes to until it’s golden around the edges.


5. Remove and let it cool (which will allow it to harden a bit so don’t panic if it’s still about soft after the bake) 😀 .

6. Melt some chocolate and spread over the flapjacks and leave to set. This step is completely optional and I do it on one side only so that I have a nice mixture of flapjacks.

7. Cut into sizes of choice and store in an airtight container.

8. Enjoy 🙂

My verdict:

This recipe is easy to make and once in a air tight container and stored in the fridge can last up to 3 days.

Served best with a nice cool glass of milk as a snack but is also very handy during the week for a little bit of energy while on the go.

Have a go and let me know how you get on!

Stay holistic 😀
