I made this recipe up as I love the taste of a Bakewell Tart but find them too sweet. I am also conscious that I need to feed my body with as much goodness as possible so I try to avoid empty calories where I can or want to.

Healthy Bakewell Flapjacks

Great to have something healthy to hand either for a quick breakfast, healthy snack or desert (I have a sweet tooth so I always crave something sweet at the end of a meal). These bakewell flapsnacks as I call them are loaded with good things for your body and are really good for your digestive system due to the linseeds, oats and natural fibre.

Servings 6 people


  • 200 grams Oats
  • 2 tbsp Vegan Spread/Butter/Flora/Oil
  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 60 grams Ground Almonds
  • 1 tbsp Golden Lindseed
  • 2 tbsp Honey or any sweetner of choice (Helps to bind and sweeten)
  • 60 grams Chopped Almonds (Optional)
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 large handful Raspberries If frozen, defrost and omit juice
  • 2 tsp (heaped) Raspberry conserve Or rasoberry jam
  • 80 grams Sultanas You can omit the sultanas and works well without. I soak the sultanas in a little boiing water to make them plum and juicey, it also stops the flapjacks being dry. Use the liquid too. Totally optional.
  • 1-2 tsp Almond Essense I love cherry bakewell flavour so I use 2 tsp but try with one first or taste mixture before adding second.


  • Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Soak sultanas in a little water if you are doing that option. Simply mix all the ingredients together except the raspberries and jam/conserve. Divide the mixture in half place and place half onto greaseproof paper or baking parchment on a baking try or in a medium size dish.  Press down and level with a fork to make a base.
  • Press the raspberries over the base then spread the jam or conserve over the raspberries.  Then spread the rest of the oat mixture over the top. Press down gently with a fork.
  • You can sprinkle seeds on top if you wish (like sunflower or linseed)
  • Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cut them into any size pieces you like.


Oats – use Musli instead
Vegan spread – use any oil/ marg/butter/fat of your choice (just choose something that does not have a strong flavour).
Sultanas – omit as not necessary or could use chopped dates or raisins.
Ground almonds – chopped whole almonds
