Banana flapjacks recipe

Banana flapjacks

Squidgy, chewy, comforting – these are everything flapjacks should be – but healthier! They contain far less sugar than the ready-made kind, and of course when you make things from scratch, you know exactly what you’re getting – real food, with no nasty additives.

Feel free to further reduce the sugar in these by using less brown rice syrup or honey than stated – the banana and raisins add a nice sweetness by themselves.

Makes 24 squares

You will need:


  1. Grease or line a small baking tray and heat the oven to 150c.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, raisins and pumpkin seeds.
  3. Place the peanut butter, coconut oil and brown rice syrup or honey in a small pan and warm for about two minutes, stirring, until melted.
  4. Add the melted mixture to the oats with the mashed banana and give everything a good mix until well combined.
  5. Spoon into the baking tray, smooth out the surface, and bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown.

These are good for up to 5 days in an airtight container stored in a dark, cool place. Or freeze for up to 3 months.
