The famous banana flapjacks

Many moons ago when I first started this blog and had my first toddler, we baked quite a lot and made cute videos. You can still see them way back on my youtube/blog and they bring me joy everytime I stumble over them.

Now, almost 10 years on and with families needing easy recipe for lockdown, it feels like the right time to bring this recipe out again with an updated video.

These flapjacks are quick to make, quick to eat, contain only a few ingredients, use up your old bananas and have what I consider to be a sensible amount of sugar in them.


Simple Banana Flapjacks

Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 150 g oats
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 75 g margarine/butter
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 75 g raisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Measure out the oats.

  2. Melt the marg/butter

  3. Add the honey and marg/butter into the oats and stir.

  4. Add the raisins plus cinnamon and mix.

  5. Mash the banana and add.

  6. Spoon into a greased and lined tin.

  7. Bake at Gas Mark 5/200C for 20 minutes. I like to cover the top for part of the cooking to stop the raisins burning.

These will keep in an airtight container for 3 days and they freeze well too. You could of course make double the amount if you have lots of snacking to do!

    We love these tasty snacks. I double the recipe as I always give some away. I have used half rapeseed oil and half butter for this batch so hoping they hold together ok.
    Question: Could I use all oil? To make then even healthier or would they not hold together. I’m trying to make small tweaks to our diet to keep our cholesterol under control. Please let me know. I’ve used several of your recipes, they are lovely and tasty and not too difficult or time consuming to make. Well done and thank you.
