  • 225g self-raising flour

  • 175g caster sugar

  • 175g sunflower margarine plus extra for greasing

  • 300g fresh raspberries and strawberries

  • 175g rolled oats


  1. Grease a swiss roll tin and preheat the oven to 190C/Gas Mark 5.
  2. Mix the flour with a pinch of salt and roughly rub in the margarine.
  3. Stir the oats and sugar into the mixture and use your hands to combine - it will be a thick doughy mixture.
  4. Press half of the oat mixture into the prepared tin. Sprinkle over the raspberries and strawberries, squashing slightly to release the juice. Cover with the remaining oat mixture then press down firmly.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then cut into squares.

    Gorgeous! Willl make great breakfasts on the go. Will make throughout the winter with frozen berries too. Used butter. Slight crumble but nowt some foil can't solve if out and about. Was very slapdash about measurements and still worked (though took a little longer to bake)

    Very tasty, but I found the mix very crumbly after baking. The squares feel apart easily once they were cut up, so best to eat at home, not really an on the go snack.

    bound to work with butter, just like all flapjacks do.

    Been making this recipe for years, with cooked dates as the filling - always a family favourite!

    Very nice. Too nice probably given I am trying to lose weight. I used butter - found there is quite a lot of fat to rub in to the flour, but it didn't seem to matter that it didn't all mix in. Also used raspberries on their own as I think they go better with oats than strawbs. Thanks for posting such a lovely recipe.

    Must be a fool proof recipe as we managed to make it in the wrong size tin with jam to make up short measure of fruit and still delicious

    I guess this will work with butter too? Don't tend to use margarine ...
