Date Flapjack


With Helen Jackson

Date Flapjack

Time: 50 mins
Serves:  20 pieces
Cost per piece: 50c

Ingredients
200g dates, chopped
100g dried apricots, chopped
100g raisins
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla
225g butter
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup flour
1 cup, packed brown sugar

Method
Soak the dates, apricots and raisins in boiling water for 20-30 minutes. Drain well.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line a 28cm x 18cm slice pan.
Melt butter in a saucepan or in the microwave and then add vanilla.
Combine oats, seeds, flour and brown sugar in a bowl and mix in butter.
Press half the mixture into the slice pan and then cover with the fruit. Top with the remaining mixture. Pressing pieces together to seal.
Bake for 30 minutes and then allow to cool completely before cutting into pieces (I find it easier to cut after waiting a day).
