Yummy Vegan Flapjack

I have always loved baking, and as I am gradually making the change to being vegan I decided to try out a vegan recipe. Flapjack seemed like a good place to start - it's a moreish treat but can be healthy too, especially if it's homemade.
The following recipe is based on Mary Berry's flapjack recipe, and I have adapted it into a healthy, vegan treat. You can put whatever you like into flapjack, just have a rummage in your cupboards!

  • 8oz vegan margarine
  • 8oz demerara sugar (I didn't have any so used dark brown soft sugar instead and it turned out really well!)
  • 3oz golden syrup
  • 10oz porridge oats
  • 2-3 handfuls mixed seeds
  • 1-2 handfuls finely chopped dried apricots
  1. Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C Fan/Gas 3. Grease a traybake or roasting tin.
  2. Melt margarine, sugar and syrup in a large pan over a low heat then stir in oats, seeds and apricots. Mix well and turn into prepared tin.
  3. Bake for 35 minutes or until pale golden brown. Leave to cool for 10 minutes. Mark into 24 squares and leave to finish cooling in the tin.
I am really pleased with how these turned out, and I am looking forward to trying the recipe again with different ingredients - does anyone have any good ideas?
