Flapjacks / granola bars

flapjacksThis is our second attempt at making these bars and the second batch worked out a lot better: they were a lot moister and had a lovely fruity flavour. Basically you can adapt the recipe according to what you’ve got to hand so we added some peach leather, cut into pieces.

INGREDIENTS:
450g rolled oats
300g dried figs, cut into pieces
150g walnuts
150g almonds
125g cranberries
3 eggs, beaten
100ml honey
1/2 small glass sweet sherry
Splash sunflower oil
3 eggs, beaten
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
Grated zest and juice of 3 oranges

Combine all the ingredients and press into an oiled tin.

Bake in a hot oven (180ºC) for 20-25 minutes.

As we were baking them in the wood-fired oven, I covered them with foil and baked for 10 minutes, turned round after another 10 minutes and then baked uncovered for 5 or so minutes.

Leave to cool for 10 minutes and then cut into pieces and leave to cool completely.
