This weeks post is a breakfast recipe as it is national breakfast week is 22nd – 28th January. Breakfast is the first meal in the day so it’s really important to nourish yourself well. I have never been much of a breakfast fan, even pre eating disorder years. Sometimes toast is good or cereal but I’ve found that what I really like is a breakfast flapjack. It’s quick and easy to eat. Also, oats & seeds are really good for your gut.

- 375g oats
- 20g pumpkin seeds
- 30g sunflower seeds
- 175g butter
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 150g light brown sugar
Note – this recipe is quite crumbly but it tastes incredible! Also, feel free to add in nuts, dried fruit etc.
- Line a baking tin with greeseproof paper.
- Preheat the oven to 160 degrees fan oven.
- Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan on the hob.
- Meanwhile, put the oats, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds into a large bowl
- Once the butter, sugar and golden syrup have mixed together, pour the mixture into the large bowl.
- Mix everything together, it will look very crumbly but that’s ok.
- Put it into the tin and flatten it with a spoon so that it’s evenly spread.
- Put it in the oven for 20 minutes, or more if you want it to be crispier.
- Once it’s golden brown, keep it on the side and let it cool down.
- After it has cooled, cut it into however many slices you wish.
I cut mine into 14 pieces so that it will last me two weeks. Also, it’s so nice eating it warm so I’d recommend putting your piece in the microwave for 10 seconds before you eat it.
