  • 2 eggs (large, organic)

  • 8oz porridge oats

  • 1 handful coriander chopped

  • 3oz organic unsalted butter melted

  • 6oz organic grated mature cheddar

  • 1 carrot grated


  1. You can literally throw all of this into a large mixing bowl (I add the eggs last to bind) and stir with a wooden spoon until it's all nicely blended.
  2. Spread the mixture evenly, making sure it is level around the sides, into a non-stick swiss roll tin.
  3. A nice touch is to garnish before cooking with vigorous splashes of Worcestershire sauce and hey presto! Grandma's groovy cheese flapjack is ready to go in the oven - for a mere 25 minutes on 175C.

Handy Hint

If ever there was a budget bite, this is it! It's also a low GI vegetarian dish and while it's wheat free, I can't promise you gluten free.

You can change this around and add different herbs or perhaps some caramelised onions and garlic, or pumpkin seeds even. It's up to your own individual taste and creativity in the kitchen.

When it's done, remove from the oven and lightly slice it into 16 pieces while it's still in the tin. Wait until it cools and carefully remove it with a flat spatula and dress up with a colourful salad before eating!
For this lunchtime treat, I made a simple salad mixing up rocket and lambs leaves and sliced tomatoes with a simple dressing topped with pumpkin seeds and pine nuts - add a bowl of Paupers Lentil Soup if you dare!

    This is a great snack or light meal. I added a grated zucchini as well as the Worcestershire sauce and substituted the coriander with basil and it was great. An excellent way of hiding veges.

    Looks great and I'm definately going to try. Just a little comment. If you sprinle with Worcestershire sauce they are no longer Veggie as ot contains Anchovies.

    Easy and uses up normal stuff I have in the cupboards. Good, energy boosting snack that's not full of sugar.

    This has been handed down through generations so quite a heritage recipe. It's easy to make and you can use it for lunch or snacking. It's Low GI too
