Maryvic's Flapjack

Heat oven to 180C/fan160C/gas4.  Heat sugar, syrup, butter and chopped dates in a pan until the dates are soft and everything else has melted and is frothing. Stir the frothing mixture for about 3 mins. Remove from the heat.

2.  Add oats, flour, nuts, seeds, etc (all the remaining ingredients). Pour into a non-stick tin approx 20cm x 16cm and press down lightly.

3.  Bake for about 14-15 mins until slightly brown, then check at short intervals, to achieve a result that you like

4.  Allow to cool in the tin, then turn out while still warm and cut into pieces to desired size.

Thanks go to Maryvic for this. Try not to eat it all at once!
