These flapjack fingers are really quick to make with no coking involved, and make a perfect rainy day activity with little ones who enjoy getting involved in the kitchen. By using rice crispies the flapjack is not quite so dense and makes a perfect lunchbox or teatime snack. This recipe yields quite a large quantity of around 16-20 fingers, ideal if you have a party or large family. However, when I just want to make a quick snack I simply halve the quantities and use a smaller dish to make around 8 fingers.


  • 75g rice crispies
  • 150g porridge oats
  • 75g sultanas (or dried fruit of your choice)
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 95ml golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 125g crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Grease thoroughly a dish approx 23x30cm
  2. Mix together the rice crispies, oats and fruit
  3. In a large saucepan, add sugar, golden syrup and honey and over a medium heat stir together until just boiling, take off the heat and add the peanut butter and vanilla extract and stir until smooth
  4. Tip the cereal and fruit mixture into the saucepan containing heated syrup mixture and stir thoroughly (it will be quite stiff)
  5. Into your prepared dish press in the mixture using the back of a spoon. Allow to cool and go firm and cut into fingers
