A delicious and sweet treat which is easy to make, and a great way of enjoying the nutritional benefits of Manuka honey.
This recipe makes 8 flapjacks.
- 220g of unsalted butter
- 1tsp of unsalted butter to grease the pan
- 2 tbsp vanilla paste or essence
- 6 tbsp Manuka honey *
- 350g of oats *
- 2 tbsp desiccated coconut *
Pre-heat the oven to 170ºC or Gas mark 3.
In a saucepan, add together the unsalted butter, vanilla paste and 5 tbsp of Manuka honey and gently warm on a hob to melt before stirring together. Add the oats to the melted mixture and mix together until combined.
Gently oil the base and sides of a baking tray before adding the mixture. Evenly spread the mix across the tray and flatten.
Place the tray into the centre of the oven, and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown. Once ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Once cool, evenly smear a thin layer of Manuka honey across the surface, and then scatter a layer of desiccated coconut on top. Evenly cut the flapjacks into squares and serve.
