    These flapjack-style cakes are delicious served warm as a pudding, or cold as a tea-time or lunch-box treat.

    150 ml water, boiling
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    150 g low-fat spread
    150 g oats or oatmeal
    75 g light brown sugar
    1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
    1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    6 tablespoon apple juice
    225 g dried date(s), stoned and chopped

    Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180°C/350°F. Line the base of a 20 cm (8-inch), square, shallow tin with greaseproof paper or baking parchment.

    Place the dates in a heatproof bowl and pour on the boiling water. Leave to stand and soften for 15 minutes. Add the vanilla essence and beat to a smooth puree.

    Gently melt the spread in a saucepan, or in a bowl in a microwave oven. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Mix well.

    Spoon half of the oat mixture in the tin, pressing it down well with the back of a wooden spoon. Spread the date puree over the base and top with the remaining oat mixture.

    Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the surface is golden. Allow the mixture to cool in the tin before cutting into 16 squares. Store in an airtight container.


    Will make some the weekend and do a taste test.! :D
