Healthy Cranberry and Orange Flapjack for a Flapjack-a-holic.

Christmas has come and gone but I’ve still got cranberries to use up. I’ll be honest, I’m a flapjack-a-holic, so even after making the cranberry muffins I had to play around and make up some flapjacks too. Life with out flapjack is not worth thinking about. However my flapjack has to be a healthier version, gone is the treacle, syrup and lashings of butter…. instead I’ve increased the fruit, got rid of the sugar and used honey and reduced the butter. The result is a tangy, moreish morsel that goes perfectly with a decent cuppa.

Ingredients
  1. 200g oats
  2. 100g raisins
  3. 2 tbsp honey
  4. 50g butter
  5. 100g fresh cranberries (or other berries)
  6. Juice of 1 orange
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to Gas Mark 5.
  2. Mix the oats and raisins together.
  3. Place the honey, butter, cranberries and orange juice in a microwavable container. Heat for 3 minutes, stopping to stir it every minute.
  4. When it is finished remove from the microwave and crush the cranberries in the container using a fork or the back of a spoon.
  5. Mix the wet into the dry ingredients.
  6. Spoon into a lined, greased flapjack tray and bake for 20 minutes. I cover mine with greaseproof paper for the first 10 minutes to prevent the raisins from burning.

  1. I made these today and they are delicious as well as being really easy to make. I added a chopped up apple instead of the orange juice but that seemed to work quite well as well. Thanks for posting! They’re going to make great snacks for this week!
