Oat Bran Flapjack With Coconut & Sunflower Seeds

Oat Bran Flapjack With Coconut & Sunflower Seeds

Oats and oat bran are really good ingredients to use in cooking. Oat bran in particular is very good for people with a sensitive gut because it is digested easily.

Serves: 16


  • 140g rolled oats
  • 140g oat bran
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 3 tbsp sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • 140g unsalted butter


  1. Pre heat the oven to 200°C / Gas mark 6. Mix the oats, oat bran, soft brown sugar, coconut, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds together in a large bowl. Melt the butter gently in a saucepan and mix in the dry ingredients.
  2. Tip into a baking tin 2.5cm deep. Press down and smooth out with the back of a metal spoon.
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the flapjack begins to turn golden brown at the edges.
  4. Cut into squares as soon as you remove the flapjack from the oven and leave to cool before removing from the tin.

Tip: These flapjacks are great as a snack to take with you to eat either as a late breakfast with some fruit or an afternoon snack with a cup of tea. Just wrap them in some paper and take them with you.
