These are really easy to make. They are great for breakfast and handy to have as a standby snack. Made with honey and nuts, they are a great energy boost for toddlers and also a good staple for breastfeeding mums.
Prep time: 15 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins
- 250g Porridge Oats
- 110g Butter
- 100g Brown Sugar
- 2 tbsps Honey
- Handful of pumpkin seeds and almonds*
- Handful of raisins*
*Note you can add any additions such as desiccated coconut, sesame seeds, chopped prunes, dried cranberries. Just try and few variations out and see what you prefer.
- Place all ingredients in a food processor (except nuts and raisins) and pulse until fully mixed, but be careful not to overmix making sure the oats keep their texture.
- Bash almonds so they aren't too big or blitz them in food processor if your baby is younger than 12 months.
- Add nuts and raisins and quickly pulse to mix them in properly.
- Lightly grease a baking tin with butter and spoon in all the mixture.
- Using the back of a spoon press into the corners so the mixture is flat and score the mixture into 12 squares.
- Place in the oven and bake on 180c until golden brown (about 20 minutes).
Weaning: babies can eat the flapjacks from 12-months–old (honey). It is also worth giving the nuts a blitz in a food processor to prevent choking. There's differing information available about when to introduce your baby to nuts. If you have allergies in your family, then perhaps be a little more cautious.

We know what a pain it is to scrub at your baby's clothes each day, so my husband and I designed a lightweight baby bib. The bib covers clothes from your baby's neck to their toes and is tight at the cuffs. Check out our range of Small Coverall bibs and Aprons are perfect for toddlers keen to get involved with baking. The fabric is as light as a feather so it doesn't hinder their movements.
