I’m always on the hunt for new healthier options to satisfy my sweet tooth.  I played around with the ingredients a little depending on what I had in the cupboards. A ‘quick’ trip to the supermarket is a thing of the past with an 18-month-old!


1 ½ cups wholemeal self-raising flour

1 ½ cups oats

⅓ cup coconut sugar. I didn’t have this & the result was tasty without.

Pinch of salt

⅔ cup melted coconut oil

1 large beaten egg

3 tbsp local honey

⅔ cup shredded coconut

1 tbsp raspberry jam or preserve of choice


How to

  1. Add ingredients into a bowl but leaving the jam to one side
  2. Put 2/3 of the mixture onto a lined baking tray and press down firmly
  3. Spread with a thin layer of raspberry jam
  4. Pour evenly over the remaining mixture and press down firmly.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes until golden
  6. Leave to cool then slice
