Cranberry and macadamia flapjacks

>Ingredients list:
150g butter
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 tbsp treacle
200g porridge oats
2 tbsp agave syrup
50g muscovado sugar
120g cranberries and macadamia mix

Melt the butter and oil in a medium pan.
Put all the dry ingredients together 
in a big bowl, then pour the melted butter and mix while adding the 
agave syrup and the treacle.
Spread into an oiled tray so that you get 
a depth of about 1 cm. Put in a hot oven at 180〫for about 20min. The edges 
must look brown and crispy before you take it out. Let it cool down 
then cut big squares with the tip of a knife. Enjoy with a cup of tea on a blanket by the river as I did last Monday with my boys… 
Blissful!

Nutrition notes:
Oats are very good at lowering your cholesterol . The agave syrup is a
health option because its low glycemic load means that your glucose
levels won’t shoot up too quickly, so no hunger pangs straight after
and more long term energy. To make this recipe healthier you can replace the fruit and nuts with pumpkin, sesame or linseeds. A good way to get the chicks to eat their seeds!
