Flapjacks are a great bake for little chefs. They’re really quick and easy to make and you don’t need to be too accurate when you measure the ingredients. This easy fruity honey flapjack recipe is a bit healthier than some as it uses sultanas and apricots but you could substitute that for any other dried fruit, nuts or seeds that you like. I also removed all the refined sugar and just used honey, which makes them a great snack if you’re trying to avoid too much sugar.

Ingredients

115g butter
100g honey
175g porridge oats

Weigh the dry ingredients

While the butter is melting, get your child to measure the remaining dry ingredients – oats (175g), sultanas (65g), apricots (55g) and sunflower seeds (25g) – and put them in a large bowl. Don’t worry about being too accurate. That’s the great thing about making flapjacks, just weigh things out roughly and throw them in the bowl.

    1. These look so yummy! We make a similar recipe with chopped dates and desiccated coconut and I always feel positively saintly eating them with them having no refined sugar. Thanks for linking up with #DreamTeam lovely x

      • My kids like those kiddies snack bars and this is a much cheaper version of them! I only like flapjacks if they’re full of fruits I like, otherwise I probably wouldn’t bother with them either.
