Recipe – Honey, Pistachio and Apricot Flapjack

This is turning into a very busy but good week so far. I’ve had a lovely few days at work, spending a lot of time outside gardening, and we are being naughty and having fish and chips for dinner tonight to celebrate Ian getting a rather good promotion at work!

These tasty flapjacks have several flavours from the Middle East that work together perfectly to produce a chewy, fruity, nutty flapjack…they didn’t even last until breaktime when I took them in to the staffroom at work!

Ingredients

flapj1

150g of butter

150g of soft, brown sugar

2-3 tablespoons of honey

175g of oats

50g of chopped pistachios

150g of dried apricots, chopped

How to make it

  • Preheat your oven to 160°C, Gas Mark 4 then grease your baking tray. I admit to having a bit of a job to get the flapjack out when it was cooked so I would recommend lining your tray with greaseproof paper too!
  • Melt your butter in a small pan, then add the sugar and honey until meltedflapj2
  • Put the oats, pistachios and apricots in a mixing bowl and pour over the melted butter mixtureflapj3
  • Stir well then transfer to the baking trayflapj4

  • Allow to cool, slice and eat!

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
