These savoury flapjacks are another good source of fibre and also provide a great vehicle for some omega 3 and omega 6 rich seeds.  The sustaining combination of whole grains and protein makes these ideal for a school lunch box.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 50g butter
  • 150g porridge oats
  • 150g mature cheddar grated
  • 1 large carrot peeled and grated
  • 1-2 tbsp ground linseeds ( or ground mixed seeds)
  • 1 tbsp whole sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • A little oil for brushing

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4
  2. Place a piece of baking parchment into a baking tray (approximately 19mm square) and brush a little oil over this to help stop the flapjacks from sticking.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan.
  4. Then add the oats and coat
  5. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking tray and gently flatten using the back of a spoon (or sticky fingers!)
  7. Cook in the centre of the oven for 30-40 minutes, until lightly golden.
  8. Allow to cool for a little in the tin before slicing into squares.  Cool fully before eating.
