Do you cut savory flapjack hot or cold?

You can serve your flapjacks warm. I highly suggest you allow your flapjacks to cool before slicing the flapjacks into 16-20 serving sizes pieces for your family. Once your flapjacks have cooled down completely, you can store them for later consumption.

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.

How to store leftover flapjacks?

Once your leftover flapjacks have cooled completely, you can remove them from your baking tin and store in an airtight container for 2-3 days. You can store your flapjacks in the freezer to use as a future meal for your weekly meal plan idea. Make sure the savory flapjacks are stored in a freezer-friendly airtight container in individual serving sizes.
