      RamonML – Here is GCN’s recipe for the flapjack. You can also watch the video here

      Sunflower Oil – 120ml/3/4 cup
      Soft Dark Brown Sugar – 200g/1 cup
      Golden Syrup – 2 tbsp
      Peanut Butter – 1 tbsp
      Vanilla Extract – 1/2 tsp

      Melt these ingredients in a pan over a low heat until melted and mixed together.

      Next, add:
      Sesame Seeds – 25g / 2 tbsp
      Sunflower Seeds – 25g / 2 tbsp
      Flaked Almonds – 50g / 1/2 cup
      Sultanas – 50g / 1/2 cup
      Chopped Dates – 50g / 1/2 cup

      Gradually stir in thick cut porridge oats/oatmeal – 225g / 8 oz. Transfer mixture to a baking tin lined with parchment. Roughly 25 x 15cm or 10 x 6 inches. Press down firmly with a metal fork. Place in an oven at 180degrees c, 350 degrees f or gas mark 4 for 10 – 15 minutes, keeping an eye on them so they don’t get over done. Finally, leave to cool in the tin before you take them out and cut them.

    I learned something new today. In North America “flapjack” is a (somewhat archaic) synonym for pancake. An energy bar is an energy bar. Author must be British? Cheers.
