No flap, no crap flapjacks

I think I can safely say I am a psyllium husk convert. I discovered it in a seeded bread recipe and haven’t found anything better to act as ‘glue’ when baking without conventional ingredients.

Today I road tested it with my flapjacks. I followed no set recipe instead I just mixed all my favourite ingredients and by luck (and skill of course) created the perfect no-crumble, guilt free, flavour packed flapjack. 




  • 2 tbsps of psyllium husk (buy at organic/health food shops)
  • 400g rolled oats
  • 200g jumbo raisins and cranberries
  • 3 tbsps chia seeds
  • 2 tbsps coconut oil
  • 250g of rice sugar
  • 150ml of water
  • 1tbsp vanilla essence 
  • 75g crushed walnuts

Cooking method 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180c
  2. Line a large baking tray with foil
  3. Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well
  4. Flatten the mixture in the baking tray
  5. Bake on the top shelf for 30 minutes
  6. Take out of the oven and remove from the tray also removing the foil. Put the flapjacks back on the tray and bake for a further 10 minutes. 
  7. Remove from the oven and cut into 12 squares before they cool and harden.
