Chocolate Tahini Salted Caramel Flapjacks (Oat Bars)


A tasty fusion of the best of Middle Eastern & French flavours in a British flapjack (oat bar)…

Ever keen to experiment in the kitchen? Want to get the kids involved? Need a homemade school / home-school / work  / picnic snack? Get baking flapjacks!

 No my American friends these are not pancakes but oat bars.
Chocolatey from coco, creamy smooth from light tahini (sesame seed paste), crunchy nutty from roughly chopped almonds (you could use pistachios instead) and let’s not forget bursts of salted caramel fudge. I would almost call these decadent flapjacks with a humble chewy texture from the use of oats and golden syrup.
Kids and grown ups alike love them, my 5 year old even said ”mum, these are amazing”  trust me he’s still ever the picky eater complaining when he eventually stumbled upon an almond piece a day later at breakfast ” mum, next time make them without these nuts” that’s kids for ya.

If you don’t like chocolate, tahini or salted caramel (really?) then check out my flapjack / cereal bar recipe template, a blank canvas for you to go to town with or keep as simple as you like.


If you love tahini as much as I do you can top a flapjack or 2 with some extra tahini mixed with syrup / honey before serving.

  1. 100 grams unsalted butter
  2. 25 grams / 1 tablespoon light tahini

Bake on middle shelf for 20-30 minutes, you may need to cover the tin half way through baking time if you see the caramel starts to burn or the edges are becoming too dark.
