Irresistible Flapjack – Simply SeedZ Style!

For some reason, and with many attempts, I have never been brilliant at making flapjack but at last, my fruity flapjack recipe with a little chocolate on top, is a resounding success!

Great as a snack & perfect with a cuppa!

Full of goodness and of course containing lots of pumpkin and sunflower seeds!  If you want to have a go at making, here’s my recipe!


500g Simply SeedZ Apricot & Cranberry Bircher Muesli

155g butter/margarine

125g soft brown sugar

1 tablespoon golden syrup

Heat oven to 180c and line a baking tray (9 inch)

Melt butter & sugar together in large saucepan

Add syrup and mix.

Add Bircher Muesli & stir thoroughly.

Press into baking tray and bake for approx 30 minutes.

Leave in tin to cool.

Optional topping: melt some dark chocolate and drizzle over cooked flapjack.

Once cooled cut into slices and store in an airtight container. Should keep for a few days, if you can manage to resist!
