Apricot Flapjacks

An easy, reduced-fat & economical alternative to shop-bought cereal bars


  • 200g/7oz porridge oats. You can use gluten-free oats if you wish
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup - or use 3 tbsp agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp vegan margarine (eg Pure, Suma, Vitaquell, Biona)
  • 3-4 tbsp plant milk, eg soya or almond
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 10 dried apricots, chopped quite small


1. Melt the syrup, sugar and margarine together in a pan over a gentle heat,. Add the plant milk and stir in. 

2. Add the oats and apricots, stir in wel and press the mixture into an oiled cake tin - an 8 inch square tin does well

3. Bake in the oven for 10-20 minutes at 190C/380F/Gas Mark 5 or until just beginning to brown

4. Cut lines into the 'cake' while still warm. Cool and break into bars


Delicious treat and really easy to make! 

Trying this tomorrow with my 2 youngest children .
