Flapjacks – no processed sugar, all natural. Great for a snack or on an endurance exercise session.



  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 250ml honey
  • 150g chopped dates
  • 400g porridge oats
  • 100g desiccated coconut (if desired)


  • Preheat the oven to 180oC and line a 30x20cm baking tin with baking parchment.
  • Put the butter, honey and dates in a saucepan over a low heat.  Melt together, crushing the dates with a fork or whizz with a hand held food blender for seconds.  The mixture should be lovely and squidgy.
  • Stir in the oats and coconut.
  • Pack the mixture into the prepared baking tin and bake for 25-30mins until golden brown.  The flapjacks will seem soft at this point but will firm up as they cool down.
  • Score into 15 portions and remove from the tin.
