Flapjacks are a great mid-morning snack that gives you lots of slow-release energy to help keep you full up until lunch. These flapjacks are really healthy as they contain no butter and if you use honey, only natural sugar. By adding some extra spices and dried cranberries, you can give your usual flapjacks a Christmas twist. The mixed seeds also give the flapjacks a nice crunch. You could make these tasty flapjacks as a quick and inexpensive Christmas food gift, or use them to give yourself fuel ready for Christmas shopping!
