Seedy flapjacks

The addition of seeds makes this snack high in protein and fibre as well as slow release carbohydate for sustained energy. Useful post exercise as a snack or for a mid afternoon treat. I've tried many healthy flapjack recipes over the years and most crumble really easily. This one works.


150g coconut oil

110 g coconut sugar or molasses

4 ½ tbsp. maple syrup

375g jumbo oats (important)

3 apples grated with skin on

2 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp pumpkin seeds (or a mix)

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp ground flax

3 tbsp dried cranberries (optional)

Oven 180C Gas mark 4

20 x 30 cm tray lined


  1. Gently heat the coconut oil, sugar and maple syrup in a pan until melted.
  2. Mix the oats, cinnamon and seeds in a bowl. Grate in the apples and stir lightly
  3. Mix together the oat mixture and the melted oil and sugar mixture.
  4. Pour into the tin, level and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden
  5. Remove, slice and leave to cool in tin.
