Ingredients

  • 50g butter , plus a little for greasing
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 dessert apple , unpeeled and coarsely grated (you need 85g)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 50g raisins
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 50g spelt flour
  • 40g unblanched hazelnuts , cut into chunky slices
  • 1 egg

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and lightly grease a non-stick baking tray (or line a normal baking tray with baking parchment). Tip the butter and syrup into a small non-stick pan and melt together, then add the apple and cook, stirring, over a medium heat until it softens, about 6-7 mins. Stir in the cinnamon and raisins.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the oats, spelt flour, and hazelnuts in a bowl, pour in the apple mixture, then add the egg and beat everything together really well.

  • STEP 3

    Spoon onto the baking tray, well spaced apart to make 9 mounds, then gently press into discs. Bake for 18-20 mins until golden, then cool on a wire rack. Will keep for 3 days in an airtight container or 6 weeks in the freezer.
