Miss W's extra Special flapjack recipe

These are not diet flapjacks! but they are really nice.and not at all hard to make. I make loads of these as My fiancee and friends love them so they don't last long .This recipe makes about 5 to 6 but I usually have to double it .


  • 125 grams of oats

  • 60 grams of dried fruit (I use dried banana & raisins but you could use anything)

  • 100 grams of dessicated coconut

  • 120 grams of honey(about half a small jar)

  • 60 grams of butter

  • Orange juice if the mix is to dry

    you also need: a large saucepan ,some silicone cupcake liners, a bakingtray.
    if you want to use paper liners you will need a cupcake pan to put them in as the paper liner won't stand up by themselves or you can put them inside the silcone liners .Here's what you do:

  • Preheat the oven to gasmark 5

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan

  • .Add the honey

  • Add the rest of the ingredients

  • Mix it all up very well

  • The mix should be pretty sticky now with the butter and honey holding the dry ingrients together .If it's to dry add orange juice little by little.

  • Put the mix into your silicone cupcake liners and put them in the oven for 7 minutes

The flapjacks keep easily for a week in an airtight container.

They're all wrapped up in pretty little cellophane packets ready to be sold. (Etsy shop opening soon if anyone is intrested) I made 30 of them. really tired now!

I wanted to share this with you.

Isn't the illustration gorgeous! I found them in a charity shop and could not believe my luck. I won't be wearing these the packaging is to nice and i'm a sucker for a pretty packet!
