  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 65g sugar (white is fine, brown adds a nice caramel flavour)

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 30ml skimmed milk

  • 75g oats

  • 1 egg whites

  • 1 large banana mashed

  • 40g raisins or mixed raisins/sultanas/dried cranberries


  1. Mix first 6 ingredients together.
  2. Separately, beat together wet ingredients, pour over dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Pour into lined tin and bake for 25-30 mins at 175C/Gas Mark 4.
  4. Leave to cool and then cut into bars.

Handy Hint

Keep in airtight tin for 2 or 3 days max.
This is great to make with toddler assistance as it is just mashing and stirring!

    Great recipe. Lovely to find a tasty flapjack without all that butter! Can't wait to start experimenting with different fruit and seeds etc! Thanks, JackBauer!

    not sure they came out as intended but a yummy mix to eat with a spoon...

    Lovely, very healthy.

    Absolutely beautiful guilt-free treat. Very easy to make.

    Yum Yum! I doubled the quantities, omitted the sugar and added, (very precise now) a dollop of honey! Great. You could add cherries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, mixed nuts if this doesn't affect allergies and loads of, "stuff". It was so nice to give my 2 free range to be cfeative in the kitchen without the need for icing sugar or coloured, jellied sweets!

    Made these today due to our banana mountain [hmm] and they are yummy *but* more like cake than flapjacks. I did double quantities if that's relevant (I refer you to the previously-mentioned banana mountain) - have I done something wrong?

    Easy to make with 2.5yrdd, I had no vanilla so swapped for caramel sauce they are lovely sticky and the banana works well. ds9mths adores them. thanks! they took exactly 25mins in my (fast) fan oven.

    I've just made these and they were lovely. What is the texture supposed to be? I think I may have done something slightly wrong or didn't cook it for long enough as it was a bit spongy. Still absolutely yummy though.

    Yup, just 75, doesn't look like much but it works, honest.

    Is it only 75g of oats. Have not tried recipe yet nad wanted to check

  • akamilly 01/05/09 06:38

    Oh you star! I've just found a less than ripe banana nestling in No1 d's lunch bag! Bleargh! I was going to chuck it out ... but instead she's now got it back in there again today just wrapped in the coating of flapjack! Nice one! I'd never thought to add banana! thanks :)

    Did you know you can freeze ripe bananas, just wrap them in clingfilm, skin and all, and pop them in the freezer. Defrost for a bit before you use them in a recipe. Handy when you haven't got time to use those soft bananas straight away.

    I love these cereal bars, every time I have a last few browning bananas I rustle up some of these which go out with us to the park, or for a snacky breakfast if we haven't had time. I also used them as outside snacks when BLWing both my DD's as you can cut them into fingers and they hold together quite well.
