  • 80 g unsalted butter
  • 150 g smooth sugar-free peanut butter
  • 200 g honey
  • 250 g ordinary porridge oats
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease and line the bottom and sides of an 8" / 20cm x 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof / parchment paper.
  • In a large saucepan over a low heat, place the unsalted butter, peanut butter, and honey. Stirring constantly, allow these to melt and infuse together. Remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the oats, salt and vanilla extract and mix well together.
  • Scrape the contents of the saucepan into the baking tin and press down all over with the back of a spoon ensuring an even covering.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Once cooked remove from oven and leave in the tin placed on a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cooled carefully remove the oat slab from the tin, place on a wooden board and cut into 9 squares.
  • The flapjacks will keep in an airtight tin for up to 10 days.
