Chewy Pumpkin Seed & Cranberry Flapjacks

This oaty treat is a classic, perfect for fuelling busy days

Flapjacks are my favourite sweet chewy treat which I have been making since I was a teenager. Here I have added pumpkin seeds and cranberries. They're great as a work snack or for a day out.

Makes 20 pieces

250g jumbo oats
125g softened butter
120g brown sugar
3 Tbsps golden syrup
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup dried cranberries

1. Preheat an oven to 170C. Line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking paper.

2. Into a food processor place the oats, butter, sugar and golden syrup, blitzing until combined and sticky. Add the pumpkin seeds and cranberries and give a quick blitz, so as not to crush them. Press the mixture evenly into your tin. Bake for 20 minutes, turning around in the oven halfway through to allow even cooking.

3. Cool and slice into even sizes. Store in an airtight container.
