If you don’t have the same dried fruits and seeds, feel free to swap for whatever you have to hand!

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C/160 Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line a 7” square tin with greaseproof paper. Prepare the bananas by mashing them in a bowl, set aside.

Step 2

Add the coconut oil and chopped dates to a pan and melt over a low heat until the date/coconut oil mix become soft and squidgy. Add the mashed bananas to the pan and mix well.

Step 3

In a bowl, combine the oats, coconut, seeds and dried fruit. Make a well in the centre and pour the banana/date mixture over the oats (it will be quite thick), and mix until well combined. Spoon the mixture into the tin and bake for about 25-30 minutes and golden brown.

Step 4

Once baked, leave to cool in the tin for about 15 minutes before cutting into squares. Store the flapjacks in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
