Banana Flapjack

What You Need (makes 8-10 flapjacks)

  • 75g (3oz) polyunsaturated margarine
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 75g (3oz) soft brown sugar
  • 1 large banana mashed
  • 200g (8oz) rolled oats (porridge oats)

How To Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Place the margarine, honey and sugar into a pan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in the banana and oats, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Press into a lightly greased small square baking tin (approx. 1 inch deep).
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Leave to cool completely before removing from the tin.
  7. Store in an air-tight container.

Try making different flapjacks:

  • Banana and sultana flapjack: add half a cup of sultanas and reduce the sugar content by 25g (1oz).
  • Instead of banana try other fruits such as pureed/finely chopped apple, peaches or apricots.
