How to make a seed-free flapjack
There are some upgrades and options for these savory flapjacks. If your family wants to adjust this recipe to best suit your specific needs or desires, then consider replacing the pumpkin and sunflower seeds with a half-cup baked quinoa.
Other options could be to replace fresh, chopped herbs and different vegetables to your savory flapjacks. For instance, you can use about 6 florets of cauliflower finely chopped instead of carrots in your vegetarian flapjacks.
Some enjoy making these savory flapjacks in a more Mediterranean style with finely chopped red pepper and a half cup of sweetcorn kernels with a little chopped oregano. You can use these vegetables as a replacement of the vegetables in the current savory flapjacks recipe featured below.
