Let’s make some flapjacks!

Making flapjack is an easy way to empty your cupboard and discover new flavours! For the dried fruits we have used apricots but you can try with sultanas, cranberries…


  • 40g butter
  • 150g maple or agave syrup/honey
  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 125 g rolled oats
  • 90 g chopped dried fruits
  • 40 g mixed seeds (poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, …)


  • Heat oven to 180C
  • Tip the oats, the dried fruit and the seeds into a large bowl.
  • Heat the butter, honey or maple syrup in a small pan until melted.
  • Add the mixture and the mashed banana to the bowl and mix all together.
  • Add baking parchment or kitchen foil to a tray and spread your mixture (between 1cm and 2 cm high, level the surface)
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and pre-cut the squares. Careful it is hot!
  • Bake for an extra 10 minutes. 
  • Leave to cool.
  • Place in the fridge for few hours.
  • They will keep for up to 3 days.
