These family friendly flapjack cakes are a delicious sweet treat to have on hand. With no added sugar, they make a great treat for kids and are freezable too.
I used to make these every week for my children after swimming. They are packed with fruit and have no added sugar – they get all their sweetness from the honey and fruit, so it's actually a pretty healthy snack. They are much more light and cakey than an ordinary flapjack.
|100g||butter, plus extra for greasing|
|1 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|150g||dried fruit (I use a combination of raisins and chopped prunes)|
You will need a 30x20cm tin
Heat the oven to 200c/400f/Gas mark 6. Grease a 30x20cm tin with butter.
Put the butter and honey into a saucepan and melt on a low heat. Put all of the remaining ingredients into a mixing bowl and pour the melted butter and honey over the top. Mix thoroughly.
Pour the mixture into the baking tin, pressing it down gently. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until it is starting to turn golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin.
Once cool, cut into slices or squares and serve.
