I know that I have mentioned before that I love it when people make special requests for recipes. This one I was asked for – and I’m so glad I was – they are soooooooooooo delicious!

The request was for a flapjack that contained figs and pumpkin seeds (plus anything else I wanted to throw in!!!!)

I love putting pumpkin seeds together with sesame seeds and sunflower seeds – one of my all-time favourite seed mixes – sun a nutritional powerhouse and great sprinkled over a salad – or added to flapjacks like here!!

I also knew that the guy who asked for them loves raisins and oranges so they definitely made it to the final mix. The first batch was a little crumbly but a little extra cashew nut butter took care of that in no time at all!

The taste is out of this world – so decadent, moist and moreish.

Since I first made these they have taken many trips on trains, planes and in the car. A staple that is tooooooooo yummy for words – you’d never think from the flavour that it could be soooooooo good for you!
