Energy bars. Just the new name for flapjacks really, if slightly uppity flapjacks.
So, I’m on a low carb diet and I’m busy trying to get rid of all the bad stuff from my cupboard. Thomas got a box of Kraft Cheesey Pasta today. And everyone else will get uppity flapjacks tomorrow.
These are based on a recipe ripped out of a weekend paper, I think it was the Scotland on Sunday, and it was Tom Kitchin. I know the recipe was designed for women who had just done the Moonwalk through the night in Edinburgh. And a wet night it was too.
Anyway, I’ve adapted the recipe, to fit what I had in the cupboard.
120g dark brown sugar
2 TBsp honey (I used maple syrup last time)
150g porridge oats
100g of ‘extras’ made up of a mixture of the following:
chopped pecan nuts (any nut would do)
- Using a heavy bottomed pan melt the butter with the sugar and honey
- Add all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly together
- Tip into a lined square baking tin (about 9″ square)
- Bake for 30 – 40 mins at 150C or Gas Mark 2.
