These are next level flapjacks

Sophie Hamilton

Everyone loves a flapjack, don't they? It's a delicious teatime treat but it still feels a bit healthy with all those energy-packed oats and small fruit pieces thrown in. We love this recipe from breakfast brand Lizi's, created by Miranda Gore Brown, which includes nutty granola, milk chocolate, apricots and honey. Try it out for yourself…
