My to tins were empty but luckily my cupboards were not bare. Oats, coconut, honey, butter, soft brown sugar, dried cranberries, cherries & apricots were worked together into the most delicious flapjacks. That I could serve as an after lunch as a sweet bite with a cup of tea or coffee.
As I felt the mixture with my hands or reminded me of the Australian Anzac biscuits which would have added some flour to the recipe. So I decided to bake some of the flapjacks as little biscuits. The result, chewy cookies perfect for a
Cup of coffee or an energy boost.
Here's the recipe
3oz soft light brown sugar
7fl oz clear honey
2 tbsp maple syrup
10oz rolled porridge oats
4oz dried cherries
5oz dried cranberries

Add the soft fruit
Add the oats & coconut
Stir well off the heat
Push into a greased tin & bake in a cool ovens 170 degrees
Bake for 15 mins
Cool with tin sitting wire rack then cut into squares.
If you'd like to make the flapjack biscuits. Place flatten little blobs of the mixture on a baking sheet & cook for 5-9 minutes at 180' watch to make sure these do not burn.
