Homemade Fruit And Nut Flapjack Squares

  • Serves: Makes 15
  • Preparation time: 45 minutes


Pack a few pieces of this nutritious slice for long car journeys. They are ideal for hungry tummies after a day at the beach or to break up a lazy afternoon

  1. Preheat a fan-assisted oven to 170°C (Gas 3). Line a shallow 26 x 17 cm baking tin or other similar tin with baking paper.
  2. Put the honey, butter and sugar in a saucepan over low heat. Melt the butter slowly, stirring occasionally to combine. Do not boil. Remove from the heat and stir well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the oats, nuts and fruit. Add to the honey mixture, stirring well to ensure the dry ingredients are coated. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and use the back of a large spoon or spatula to press it down into the edges and smooth the top. Bake for about 30 minutes – the slice should be dark golden.
  4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then cut the slice into about 15 pieces. Leave to cool completely in the tin, then re-cut the slice when cool and store in an airtight container for up to four days.
  5. If you don’t want to include nuts, just add an extra 80g dried fruit.
