Cheesy Flapjacks

This is an interactive post. I would like you all to shout the B word that signifies the circular things that dangle between our men folk's legs. For this recipe, copied avidly by those who tasted the version made by Michelle in Social Service's office, is described as 'healthy' in spite of containing a  veritable shedload of cheese and butter!  However if you are selective about what you clog your arteries with, this is a good delicious choice.  It could act as a  savoury alternative to energy bars if you genuinely need to pack in the calories during sustained exercise.  Think a day long moorland walk rather than ironing from an overfull laundry basket.The original (healthy) recipe contained even more cheese and butter but this is my version which has worked nicely.

Pre-heat the oven to Gas 4 or 180 degrees C.  Then you will need:
  • 350g of jumbo oats
  • 30g grated parmesan cheese
  • 200g grated strong cheddar
  • 3 large beaten eggs
  • 100g butter
  • A good handful of a strong dried herb such as rosemary or thyme
  • Salt and Pepper
  • A good handful of diced chorizo or pancetta (optional)
Once you've collected everything together, it's just a case of mixing everything together well and spreading the mixture in a greased baking tray. Cook for 35-40 minutes and then allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.Et voila! A lovely treat for the girls when they arrive this morning to participate in high impact, hunger inducing jewellery making!
