250ml honey
150g chopped dates
400g porridge oats

2 bananas, sliced
50g/2oz walnut kernels
2 tbsp crème fraïche or yoghurt
2 tbsp runny honey or maple syrup



Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas 4. 

Spray Wilton Bake Easy Spray onto a Wilton individual cavity pan such as Wilton Waffle Dipper or Wilton Square
Treat Pan.

Or Line a 30 x 20cm tin with baking parchment.

Put the butter, honey and dates in a saucepan over a low heat.

Melt them together, crushing the dates with a wooden spoon so they break up into the butter and honey and go lovely and squidgy.

Stir in the oats and coconut together and then mix into the butter mixture. Mix thoroughly.
Push the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 18 Minutes for individual bakes (or 20-25 mins for large pan) Or until golden brown.

The flapjacks will still seem soft at this point, but they will firm up once cool.

Remove the tin from the oven and immediately score the surface into about 15 squares.

eave the flapjack to cool in the tin, then cut it into squares.
