berry and cherry flapjack recipe from Nigel Brown

  • 150g Unsalted butter
  • 75g Muscovado sugar
  • 3 tbsp Clear honey
  • 250g Porridge oats
  • 150g Mixed dried berries and cherries
  • 50g Hazelnuts, roasted and chopped

Preheat the oven to 180°C

Place the butter, sugar and honey in a medium-sized pan and heat gently, stirring occasionally, until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved.

Remove from the heat and stir in the oats, dried fruit and nuts. Press the mixture into a lightly greased, rectangular, non-stick cake tin 20cm, 4cm deep) and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Allow to cool in the tin for five minutes, then score lightly with a knife to make 12 bars. Leave to cool completely in the tin before cutting and removing. The flapjacks can be stored in an airtight container for up to four days.

Fast food of the very best kind...Nigel Brown's breakfast bar recipe

Makes 14
  • 150g dried apricots
  • 150g Brazil nuts
  • 50g dark chocolate chips
  • 50g rolled oats
  • 50g muesli
  • 30g puffed rice cereal
  • 3 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 5 tablespoons orange juice

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4

Chop the dried apricots and Brazil nuts into small pieces of irregular size. Place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Next, stir in the golden syrup and orange juice until evenly combined.

Line a swiss-roll tin (20cm x 30cm) with greaseproof paper and spoon in the mixture. Smooth down with the back of a spoon so the mixture is tightly packed and of even thickness.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes, check after 15 minutes to ensure it does not burn. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for an hour or two, then chill in the fridge overnight.

Cut into 14 bars and store in the fridge.
