Banana and Honey Flapjacks

Always end up with a few over ripe bananas? This flapjack is an easy little way to use them up! They're also great sources of energy for lunchboxes or after school. I've added chocolate chips here too, but that's not at all necessary...

50g butter
60g brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp honey (or golden syrup)
2oog porridge oats
2 small bananas, peeled

small handful of milk chocolate chips (optional)

In a pan, melt butter, add sugar and golden syrup and stir well - or simply melt together in a bowl in the microwave.
Mash the bananas with a fork (if you have a little helper they'll enjoy this) and mix into butter mixture with the oats. Spread into a greased and lined baking tray, roughly 15cmx20cm in size. Flatten with the back of a spoon, and bake at 200C/Gas 6 for 15-20 mins until slightly brown.
Leave to cool, then cut into squares - I cut mine into 12.


  1. THX for this! I will definitely go for this as soon as i come back from x-mas holiday :) Or actually; why wouldn´t i bake this for my family here in Finland! oh yes. i will go for it! One thing i admire about Britain, is the flapjack culture. I can not get enough of them <3

  2. How long would these keep for bearing in mind the added banana?

  3. Hi Elizabeth, I keep them in an airtight container and find they last up to 3 days. The sugar acts as a sort of preserver so they stay fresh, even with the banana. Hope that helps! x

  4. Can you replace the sugar for more honey??
