Yummy Healthy Almond & Orange Flapjacks

We've been making the healthy flapjacks I posted about a while back almost on a weekly basis so much so I felt like it was about time for a change. The fab thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to adjust and I knew I was onto a winner when S got a whiff of the almond essence and declared it smelt like cake!

Almond & Orange Flapjacks
6 dried apricots
10 dates
3/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup flaked almonds plus some to sprinkle on the top.
5 tbsp ground almonds
1 cup porridge oats
2 tbsp wheatgerm
2 tbsp linseeds
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
juice and zest of one orange
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp cold-pressed flax seed oil
1 tsp almond essence

Put everything apart from the flaked almonds in a food processor and blend until you have a firm dough ball, add the almonds and mix well. Line a small baking dish with greaseproof paper and spread the dough into the pan to a thickness of roughly 2cm. Sprinkle over some almond flakes to decorate and press down well. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour before cutting. Store in the fridge covered with clingfilm.
