Plum Flapjacks

These sweet, fruity plum flapjacks are perfect for 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.
