Directions

I bought oats a while back to add to the topping of my apple crumble (you can find the recipe here), and since then I have not used them for anything else. So I was thinking of a way to use up the oats, and still make something delicious....so flapjacks came to mind.
  1. Soak the dates in boiling water for 5 mins, then drain and chop
  2. In a pan, place the dates, butter, honey and walnuts on medium heat until the butter melts. The dates should start turning soft and almost melt with the butter
  3. Add the sugar and raisins, and stir well. Then mix in the oats
  4. Place the mixture into a greased baking tin, and place into the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 mins
  5. When you remove it from the oven, cut into pieces but do not remove it from the tin
  6. Leave to cool completely before removing the flapjacks

To be honest, these went so quick, only one piece remained as soon as I removed them to put on serving plate. Make sure you leave them to cool completely before removing them, or they will crumble. Enjoy :)
