Cereal Bar

A very versatile Australian recipe (thanks Rhiannon!) - add the fruit and nuts etc that you like. You can miss out the egg (making it more like flapjack), and use spelt or gluten free flour if you prefer.

Makes about 12-20 pieces.



125g/4 oz butter or marg                             

1 tablespoon syrup –generous            

125g/1 cup caster sugar – or molasses sugar for a really rich flavour

100g/1 cup SR flour – or spelt with a tsp baking powder

75g/1 cup dessicated unsweetened coconut     

50g/1 cup rolled oats         

150g/1 cup sultanas (or any combination of dried fruit, nuts and seeds that you like)

1 egg   - optional  



  1. Prepare a tray - line with baking parchment - and heat the oven to 180 deg C.
  2. Melt the marg, sugar and syrup gently in a large pan on the stove or a bowl in the microwave.
  3. Add all the other ingredients, mixing well.
  4. Tip mixture into the prepared tray and press down evenly with a fork.
  5. Bake at 180 deg for 20 mins or until lightly coloured.
  6. Cut into squares while it is hot - allow to cool in the tray before eating.
