  • A topping of sunflower seeds make these healthy flapjacks extra-tasty – and they’re easy for the kids to make as well.


    • 300g butter or Clover-style spread
    • 200g demerara sugar
    • 100g golden syrup
    • 450g oats
    • 3tbsp sunflower seeds


    • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 4). Line a brownie tin measuring 20cm x 30cm with baking parchment. Stand the golden syrup tin in a jug of boiling water to help when pouring it out later.

    • In a large saucepan, gently heat the butter and sugar until melted and stir to combine well. Add the golden syrup and oats and stir again. Spoon out into the prepared tin and sprinkle over the sunflower seeds. Press the seeds down onto the surface. Place in the oven on the middle shelf and cook for 20 mins.

    • Leave the flapjacks in the tin and after 10 mins out of the oven, cut them into 12 squares. Leave to cool completely in the tin before transferring to an air-tight tin (they will keep for up to 3 days).
