Naturally delicious real food.

Seedy Flapjack

I just love flapjack because although it’s a sweet treat you also know that it’s packed with good ingredients which are sustaining and slow release, one piece should surfice, well that’s the theory!

Some of you may have children at home revising in the next few weeks, this is just the perfect treat for them and so simple and quick to throw together.

Have a search through your cupboards because you can substitute lots of the ingredients with left over bits and use up those half empty packets at the back of the cupboard. The seed mix can be any combination, try cranberries or chopped apricots rather than sultanas and if you don’t like coconut pop in sesame seeds or even chopped chocolate.

 And now for more tasty bakes…

Have you ever been to Leon? – A trendy restaurant chain in London that prides itself on fresh and wholesome fast food that you can also take away. Their first restaurant opened in Carnaby street in 2004 and now they have more than ten. Leon have produced several cookery books which are also fabulous – love the covers too! Try the lemon bars in the baking book Leon Baking and Puddings – another treat for studying teenagers or adults who just can’t resist!
