We have been corresponding with one of our readers Julia. The hot topic was hiking food, of course!
Julia is living in Spain and gets out and about doing day walks and longer trips all around Spain and the Pyrenees. It sounds like a great spot to be, and the trips, magic.
She was checking out Food to Go and decided we needed another snack recipe and shot it through to share with you all.
Let us introduce the Flapjack.
Over to Julia:
I checked out the ‘snacks’ part and found that there is something missing, so I thought I’d send it to you. It is called the ‘flapjack’, which is a very rich energy bar. I got the recipe from some English hikers and now we all make it. We are even planning a ‘flapjack competition’!
We just can’t go out there without it anymore and it is super simple to make. I cut the flapjack up in squares, the size of an energy bar, and wrap them up individually. They are soooo good and very healthy as well.
275 grams oats
100 grams light brown sugar
125 grams of nuts, dry fruit etc. (ginger)
150 grams unsalted butter
4 table spoons of honey
Mix the oats, sugar, nuts and dried fruits (cut up in small bits) in a bowl (I add grated ginger root as well)
Melt the butter and honey
Add them all together and mix well
Put in oven dish or cake tin, press together (I sprinkle sesame seeds on top and smooth them out with the back of a spoon)
Bake for 40 mins. at 180ºC (no.5)
Cool in tin and cut into squares while still warm.
I hope you will try it and like it as much as we do!
Thanks very much for sharing Julia, we will try it out, looks yum.
