Fruit and Nut Flapjack

At the beginning of last week I took delivery of a brand new cooker as my old one had decided that it was time to give up on me! I think it must of been about 30 years old, although I have no way of knowing exactly how old it was as we inherited it when we moved in to our house almost two years ago now. It was always something that we were going to replace eventually but had never quite gotten around to ~ so in a way it was quite a relief when the oven did decide to splutter to it's eventual demise.

Today I decided that it would be a good idea to test out the timings of my new oven by baking a batch of yummy Fruit and Nut Flapjack ~ this is how I made it ::

You will need ::

250 grams of oats
250 grams of unsalted butter
125 grams of soft brown sugar
125 grams of chopped soft stoned dates
  60 grams of chopped walnuts

First weigh out all your dry ingredients and put them in a large mixing bowl.

Next melt your butter in a saucepan and once melted mix well with your dry ingredients.

Press the mixture into a greased baking tin ~ mine was about 9 inches square.

Bake for 20 minutes in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees until golden.

Let it cool slightly in the tin and mark out into finger sized pieces before it is completely cool.

Once it is completely cool remove from the tin and enjoy with a nice cup of tea :O)xx

Yum, these look lovely. You've reminded me that I haven't made flapjacks for ages. I must rectify that! x
