Home baking has become a national obsession thanks to TV programmes like Bake Off – and the great news is that unlike gardening or sewing programmes, you can eat the results of your labours.
If you need to sass up your quick recipes and add superb indulgence to your tasty treats, our seed mixes are the perfect ingredients – either in the mix or, like this sensational idea, scattered on top.
Makes 12 to 18 slices.
250g jumbo porridge oats
125g butter, plus extra for the tin
125g light brown sugar
2-3 tbsp golden syrup (depending on how gooey you want it)
200g dark chocolate (melted gently over a saucepan of hot water)
200g Munchy Seeds Choccy Ginger Seeds
Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan. Gently melt the butter and stir in the sugar and golden syrup. Remove from the heat and stir in the jumbo oats.
Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with parchment. Add the mixture and press in firmly to all corners with the back of a wooden spoon. Bake for around 15 minutes until golden brown.
Cool the flapjack down, then chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or so while you melt your dark chocolate.
Remove from the fridge and pour the chocolate over. Spread evenly over the top of the flapjack. Sprinkle your Choccy Ginger seeds over the top and refrigerate for an hour.
Remove from the fridge and cut carefully into slices. See how long you can make them last, but they will keep well for up to a week in a tin or airtight container.
NB: You can replace our Choccy Ginger Seeds for our Choccy Apricot Seeds if you prefer – yum!
