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.

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 (180ÂșC) 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.

  1. It says 3 egs beaten twice, was that a mistake or is it really 6 eggs?

    I like the fact there’s no sugar.

    • No, it’s 3 eggs but I missed out the honey. So sorry, there is some sugar in there for the sweet-toothed.
