Although I love baking GF items, flapjacks are one of those things (which are GF) that I invariably forget to bake - have no idea why.
With that in mind, I set to baking a batch. There are many recipes around so take your pick but I use a basic version of 8oz jumbo oats, 6oz butter or margerine and 3 tablespoons golden syrup. After that, I add things to it.
On this occasion I added a handful of sunflower seeds, 2 grated balls of ginger plus a tablespoon of their juice and 1/2 a packet of plain chocolate drops, from the freezer and stirred in just before baking.
I baked them in an oblong at 160C for 35 minutes, cut them into 18 squares and allowed them to go cold in the tin. I usually sit my tin on the draining board which helps them go cold a little quicker.
Another time, I shall add about 10 washed and diced glace cherries and 6 - 8 diced dried apricots.
I often add a handful of linseeds, either whole or ground down, but forgot this time. Herewith said flapjacks:
This is my liast post for this week, so have a great weekend everyone!
