APPLE AND CINNAMON FLAPJACKS (Makes 12).
INGREDIENTS 400g Bramley apples, peeled, cored and chopped 200ml cold water 2 cinnamon sticks 200g rolled oats 60g soft light brown sugar (or as you like, for sweetness) or honey 80g raisins 1 tsp baking powder Sunflower oil for greasing METHOD 1. Cook the apples to a pulp with the water and cinnamon over a moderate heat with a lid on the pan for about eight to 10 minutes. Leave to cool.
2. Preheat the oven to 180degC/gas mark 4. 3. Mix the oats, sugar, raisins and baking powder in a bowl.
4. Add the apple pulp to the oats, removing the cinnamon sticks, and mix well.
5. Spoon into a greased 20 x 28cm baking tin, 5cm deep, and smooth out even and flat. Try not to have too many raisins poking out from the surface of the flapjack, as these will often catch when it's in the oven - poke them down with your forefinger.
6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until nicely coloured and firm on top. 7. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before cutting into squares. Cool on a wire rack.
