Berry Flapjacks

This is a kind of snack dessert that I had in mind for a long time. I found this recipe and decided to give it a go.


  • 225g oats
  • 100g wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 1 medium egg
  • 80ml sunflower oil
  • 50g walnuts chopped


  • 400g frozen berries
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp wholemeal flour


  • Preheat oven at 180C. Prepare a square ovenproof dish. Use a bit butter or oil to spread the bottom.
  • Mix dry ingredients: oats, flour, baking powder and in a bowl
  • Mix wet ingredients: honey, egg and sunflower oil in another bowl
  • Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  • Transfer 2/3 of the mix into the dish. Press down firmly with a fork so you have a consistent layer. Bake for 15m
  • In a saucepan, put the filling ingredients. Cook at medium heat for around 5 minutes until the berries are tender and it is close to a marmalade.
  • Pour the berries over the baked oat base.
  • Add the walnuts to the oat mix leftover. Then pour the mix over the berries. Try to press a bit with a fork again the top layer so you get a uniform cover.
  • Bake for 20m or golden. Then let cool down, cut into pieces, enjoy and to the fridge!

To be honest, the picture from the recipe looks better than mine but I am still happy with the result!
