There are times when I have well laid plans based of months of cravings for the recipes I make ad then there are the times that inspiration comes in the moment from what happens to be around. This recipe is one such instant.

I had made some berry chocolate clusters using dried berries and had opened extra packs for the photographs. This of course meant that they would need using up.

My first instinct was to make more chocolate clusters – but then as I was looking at the gorgeous summer fruits I suddenly had an idea for a new recipe. Lemon and Orange Summer Flapjack!

They turned out every bit as good as I imagined! The perfect fruity combo! They were super easy to make, smelt delicious, tasted even better and were gone in the blink of an eye! Next time I will be making two batches!!!!

I soaked the fruit in boiling water for about 10 mins and then drained it to plump it up a bit – this is totally optional but for me it just adds that extra moist scrumptiousness that I can’t resist and allows the orange and lemon to infuse into the fruit just that little bit more.
