At first we thought it was the result of hard training and dedication, as it turns out the solution to being a top climber is far simpler, the answer is the secret 'Pope Family Flapjack Recipe!'

If you've ever been fortunate enough to be offered a piece of the hallowed flapjack, you will have instantly found your grades shooting up and that you can now tick all of your problems only to find your skills mysteriously dropping again as the flapjack effects wear off.

We sent a team of fully trained ninja's round to the Pope's on a secret mission, get the recipe at all costs!! The ninja's came back bruised and battered after Jim discovered them trying to pinch the recipe and unleashed some 'Mighty Pope' rage but we have it! Here for your pleasure and (probable) increase in climbing ability is the recipe, keep it safe :-) 

(Sort of Healthy) Pope Flapjacks

160g Butter
80g Unrefined Brown Sugar 140g Lyle's Golden Syrup 300g Porridge Oats
70g Chopped Dried Apricots 50g Dried Cranberries 50g Pumpkin Seeds 50g Sunflower Seeds
A Good Pinch Of Salt Flakes

First Measure the syrup into a large pan on the scales. Then add the Butter and Sugar, and melt together. (Un-melted Demerara sugar will give extra bite!) Add the rest of the ingredients to the pan and mix well. Spread the mixture evenly in an A4 sized baking tin, lined with baking parchment.

Bake on the middle shelf of a pre-heated oven at 180°c for 18 mins. (Check after 15 mins; it should be golden, not browned.)
Cut them into squares before they are completely cool. Eat before anyone else can nab them...
