A sweet and fruity plum flapjack recipe. Perfect for lunchboxes or grab and go breakfasts.

Plum flapjack

These sweet, fruity plum flapjacks are a great way of using up plums from your tree. 

Flapjacks are a great source of energy and they also keep tummies nice and full, thanks to the oats. Adding fresh fruit to flapjacks gives them a lovely sweetness.

WHEN IS PLUM SEASON?


Plum season in the UK is between mid August and October. 

There are many varieties of plums from yellowy-red skinned Victoria plums to bright red Santa Rosa. 

I used the tarter Mirabelle plum in this recipe (which are good for cooking with), but any variety would be fine.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING FLAPJACKS


Flapjacks are one of the easiest bakes you can make, and great for getting the kids involved in the kitchen.

This recipe for plum flapjacks uses caster sugar. However, you can substitute for granulated sugar if that's all you have.

You could try using other fruits like apricots, blueberries or raspberries, or even a mixture of different fruits.

Add a handful of chopped walnuts to the flapjack mixture to give it a nutty taste and for added texture.


STEP BY STEP PLUM FLAPJACKS


Step 1: Weigh out all of the ingredients. Put the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan ready to pop onto the hob.

Leave the flapjacks to cool completely before cutting into squares. I often leave them overnight so they are easy to cut the next morning.
