Hi, today I am sharing with you Easy Seeded Flapjacks / Crunchies. I know these ‘biscuits’ traditionally crunchies but it depends where you come from as in the UK they are known as Flapjacks and are similar to the anzac biscuit in Australia.
Instead of making these as individual flapjacks you could make them the traditional way by pressing the mixture into a small rectangular baking tray. They will need to be cut while still hot and then left in the tray to cool.
With this mixture I made 20 flapjacks but that can differ too as you might decide to make yours slightly bigger or smaller. Just adjust the cooking time, they will turn a beautiful golden colour when ready. They can also be made flatter than mine, they will then be a bit harder and a bit crunchier which is also very tasty.
If you prefer some seeds over the other why not substitute them with one of the other seeds. If you are making the individual flapjacks make sure that you get the seed at the bottom of the pot in they did not incorporate into the mixture, you might need to get your hands a bit dirty (but that is a good thing 🙂
These flapjacks are so easy to make and you hardly have any washing up to do afterwards which is always a bonus 🙂
I hope you enjoy xx
