Jacqueline Meldrum from Tinned Tomatoes stopped by to give us the perfect energy boost for those weekend walks along the seafront or getting lost in the woods. 

Flapjacks are a great snack to take outdoors as they’re quick and easy to make, as well as being a healthier alternative to other sugar-filled nibbles. Jacqueline shares her delicious walnut, raisin and honey flapjack recipe below:


  • 125g butter
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • 1 medium banana mashed until gooey
  • 180g porridge oats
  • 150g raisins
  • 100g walnuts, broken into smaller pieces
  • 8g chia seeds (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 180c/160c fan/350f/gas mark 4
  2. Grease or line a brownie pan.
  3. Melt the butter.
  4. Mash a banana until it is squidgy and soft and add to the melted butter with the honey, then mix well.
  5. In a large bowl mix the oats, raisins, walnuts and seeds.
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  7. Pour the flapjack mixture into the brownie pan and press firmly until level.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes until golden. Take out near the end of cooking time and test with your finger, it should be slightly springy if you want a chewy flapjack. Leave it in longer if you want a crisper flapjack.
  9. Leave in the pan to cool.
  10. Enjoy!

Makes 16 flapjacks

Note 1: For dairy free or vegan flapacks, substitute the butter for dairy free spread and the honey for maple syrup.

Note 2: The brownie pan needs to be greased or lined for easy removal of the flapjacks. Jacqueline highly recommends  foil-baked greaseproof paper, which moulds easily into the brownie pan and is hassle-free.
