oaty brownie

I have never eaten a flapjack, but they look a little like this brownie I have just made, oaty and moreish. This is pretty easy to rustle up, although I did have to use my food processor to blitz the oats as they were large wholegrain ones. A good addition to this recipe would be chocolate chunks and replace the chopped nuts with pecans, mmmmmmmmm, that would be good.

The only photo you need to see for this is recipe how much I processed the oats. They end up looking like this.
