Flapjacks always remind me of cooking with my mother when I was a child, and I really love this recipe for how authentic it is.

The addition of mixed dried fruits and various seeds, along with the oats, means that they are essentially a power bar. If you’re stuck on a busy morning, they are just as nourishing as a bowl of cereal, or alternatively are a good after-school boost before settling down to homework.
