I am currently learning German, at the end of course party everyone was asked to bring a dish that was from their country. I chose Flapjacks, while they are pretty common in the UK, I had not seen them in Zurich and I thought it would be nice to show my fellow classmates that we have some great dishes. Flapjacks are easy to make, healthier than the usual sweet treats and a great comfort food. The beauty of this recipe is that you can add anything to it. I was feeling the festive spirit so I added some orange zest and cinnamon.


35g Butter
35g Margarine
70g Brown sugar
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Dessicated coconut
175g Rolled oats
75g Chopped nuts
140g Dried fruit
½ tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp Orange zest


  1. Put the butter, brown sugar and honey into a small pan, then heat gently until the mixture has melted and combined into a golden liquid.
  2. Add the desiccated coconut to the honey mixture.
  3. Add the oats, nuts and dried fruit to the mixture.
  4. Add the cinnamon and orange zest to the mixture.
  5. Stir to combine.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a 20cm x 20cm greased and lined baking tray and cook at 160C/140C fan/gas 4 for 35-40 mins.
  7. Remove and cool in the baking tin, then slice into pieces.
  8. Enjoy 🙂
