Yesterday I walked through a forest of Japanese Maple trees with my loved ones and made banana flapjacks. Recipe below*. What did you do this weekend?


  • Brown Sugar – 80g
  • Butter – 40g
  • Margarine – 60g
  • Oats – 250g
  • Salt – pinch
  • Banana – 1
  • Honey – 3tbsp
  • chocolate (optional)
  • Making Method

    1. Melt the butter and the Margarine in a deep saucepan over a very low heat
    2. add the brown sugar and 3 tablespoons of honey and mix well until you have a liquid substance.
    3. Mix in the oats, if you find it easier add them in gradually stirring and covering the oats with the mixture
    4. add a pinch of salt.
    5. Mash the banana into a liquid pulp and mix into the oats (this will take a good few minutes to ensure that the banana is fully mixed in).
    6. Get a knife and spread the oats evenly over a baking tray.
    7. Place the baking tray onto the middle shelf in a preheated oven (gas mark 5, 220 C) and bake for 15 minutes, checking the progress regularly. Take out when the mixture starts turning a darker colour.
    8. Stand for a minute or two, cut the flapjack into as many pieces as you wish
    9. You may find it best to leave the flapjack for a few hours to cool down although you can eat them straight away.

    *not mine by the way. It was, in fact, courtesy of the lovely folks at Google.

    What a beautiful tree!

    I watched a few movies. One of them, Stranger Than Fiction, is a really great movie! Also tasted some fine whisky’s of which Highland Park (Orkney Islands) was the best one I guess.
