Cherry and Coconut Flapjacks

October 16, 2012

I love baking and usually spend time baking with my son at weekends. He loves flapjacks so I was interested to see this competition from White Lily Green where Sainsburys are challenging you to come up with a new twist on flapjacks. I decided to try making some coconut and cherry flapjacks. I know that my son loves cherries, whenever I buy a tub for cake making he pinches them. I thought that the coconut would add a little moistness to the flapjacks and together they would be a nice combination.

This is the recipe I followed (some ingredients are a bit random as I threw them in and guessed the amount later)



  1. Put butter in bowl and beat until creamy
  2. Mix sugar and oads and gradually work into creamed butter until blended.
  3. Add the syrup, coconut and cherries and mix in.
  4. Press into 18c square tin and smooth top of flapjacks.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 220C 425F Gas 7 for 15 mins until golden brown.

I was very pleased with the result, the flapjacks were lovely and moist and the cherries really went well with the coconut. They did not last long, my son demolished a fair few as soon as they were cool. I am going to have to make some more soon.
