  • These oaty flapjacks contain raisins, which are rich in iron and B vitamins that are good for the blood. Put them in your lunchbox or enjoy them with a cup of tea for the ultimate treat.


    • 200g raisins
    • 225g unsalted butter
    • 125g soft brown sugar
    • 150g marmalade
    • Finely grated zest of one orange
    • 2tbsp black treacle
    • 400g rolled oats


    • Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas Mark 4

    • Cover the raisins with boiling water, leave for 10 mins to soften and swell, then drain

    • Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the brown sugar, marmalade, orange zest and treacle, and bring just to the boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats and drained raisins

    • Line a 25cm square tin or similar with foil, spoon in the mixture and pack it down evenly, right into the corners

    • Bake in the oven for about 25 mins, until lightly coloured at the edges. Do not cook for too long or the flapjacks will turn rock hard when cold; bake them too little and they will crumble

    • Remove from the oven and leave until warm before cutting into 16 squares
