This lovely recipe is not unlike the traditional one but is stacked with fruits, nuts and seeds making it even more healthy (if you ignore the golden syrup...).


  • 1/3 cup golden syrup (or corn syrup)
  • 200 g butter
  • 340 g porridge oats
  • 2 tbsp chopped mixed nuts
  • 2 tbsp of mixed seeds (such as pumpkin and/or sunflower)
  • 2 tbsp raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Butter a 9"x 13"/23cm x 33cm Swiss roll tin and line the base with baking parchment.
  3. Place the syrup and butter into a large saucepan and heat gently until the butter has melted into the syrup and stir well.
  4. Put the oats, nuts, ​and fruit into a roomy baking bowl, add a pinch of salt then pour over the butter and syrup mixture and stir to coat the oats.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly to fill the tin making sure the surface is even.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven while the flapjack is still slightly soft, they will harden once cool.
  7. Place the tin on a wire cooling rack and cut the flapjack into squares and leave in the tin until completely cold. The flapjack keeps well stored in an airtight tin.
