Recipe: Healthy Flapjacks

Updated: May 1, 2023

These healthy flapjacks are a great alternative to shop bought versions laden with sugar. You can change up the ingredients depending on what you fancy but ensure you have a good helping of nuts and seeds to balance out the sugar from the oats and dried fruit. Ideal for an afternoon snack if you need one!


  • 50g coconut oil

  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter

  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 250g jumbo oats

  • 85g dried apricot, chopped

  • 100g raisin

  • 100g mixed seed (I used pumpkin, chia and sunflower)

  • 100ml hot water

  • 100g mixed nuts, chopped ( I used hazelnuts and almonds)


1.) Heat oven to 160C/140C fan. Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking paper.

2.) Heat the coconut oil, peanut butter and maple syrup in a small pan until melted. Add the mashed banana and 100ml hot water, and combine.

3.) Add the oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds into a large bowl. Stir in the wet ingredients and combine into a wet mixture.

4.) Tip into the cake tin and press into the corners. Bake for 50- 55 mins until golden.

5.) Leave to cool in the tin. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep for up to 3 days.
