Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 175°c/160°c Fan/Gas Mark 3.
  2. Line the base of a 4cm/2inch deep rectangular baking tin with baking parchment. [Ours measured approximately 4cm x 30cm x 21cm (2 x 8 x 12inches)].
  3. Using a metal blade attachment, put the mixed nuts and pecan pieces in a food processor. Blitz until they are roughly chopped into smallish pieces. Don’t worry about the occasional large piece – that will just add extra bite!
  4. Now change to a plastic blade and add the oats, sunflower seeds, orange peel, almond pulp* and raisins. Blitz for a few seconds, then stir and blitz again.
  5. Sprinkle on the baking powder and blitz for a few seconds.
  6. In a saucepan add the coconut sugar, honey, cinnamon powder, coconut oil and butter. Stir until the coconut oil and butter have melted.
  7. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Take the container of dry mix off the food processor and gradually stir it into the wet mix.
  8. Combine thoroughly until you have a dropping consistency that comes easily away from the sides of the saucepan.
  9. Transfer the mixture into the greased tray and press evenly across the base with the back of a spoon. Flatten the mix neatly.
  10. Place in the oven for 18-20minutes or until the top is golden brown and the edges are starting to turn a rich brown.
  11. Allow the baked flapjack mixture to cool. (Luckily this mixture doesn’t require cutting whilst hot!) Then tip the tin upside down onto a chopping board.
  12. Slice into bars or squares as you wish. Our flapjacks were approximately 8cm x 3.5cm [3inch x 1¼inch].
  13. Store in an airtight container.
