Cranberry and Carrot Breakfast bake

Our flapjack recipe has traveled all round the world and this is an updated version with a few new ingredients. I love oats and their health benefits but you could not pay me enough to eat porridge so this way I get to enjoy the oats and as a snack it travels much easier than in a bowl!.

Makes a large flat tray which I cut into 24

650g Oats

50g mixed seeds

150g grated carrot

150g cranberries

1tsp each of mixed spice and cinammon

180g butter

200g honey

200ml water

Add honey water and butter to a pot and melt gently

Add the oats, cranberries, seeds, carrot and spices to a bowl and mix well. Make a well in the middle and add the liquid and mix well until it is fully combined.

Tip into a flat baking tray, press firmly down (damp your hands and it is much easier) and bake at 170C for about 20 minutes until golden and cooked

Let cool slightly before cutting and then let cool completely. Delicious with some fresh fruit and yogurt or as is for a complete snack.
