This recipe for granola bar or flap jack is courtesy of the famous Lakeland pedlar cafe in Keswick and fast becoming a favourite in our household.
One can of condensed milk - I use the light version
75g dessicated coconut
100g dried fruit (dates, cranberries, apricots)
125g mixed seeds (sunflower, sesame, pumpkin)
125g natural unsalted peanuts (chopped)
1. Warm the condensed milk do not boil!!!
2. combine all the ingredients with the condensed milk and place in a grease proofed tin
3. Bake for 1 hour at 130 C gas mark 1
4. Leave to cool for 15 minutes before cutting into bars (makes 16 large bars)
ready for the oven
finished and cooling
I have added more fruit and more seeds and it tastes great so don't be too precious about the quantities.
Just watch your riding mates faces drop as you tuck into a bar of this when they are chewing a power bar.
I hope you enjoy making and eating this as much as I do
