How to Bake Flapjacks

When I was younger I used to make flapjacks all of the time, so as I started making these, I thought to myself: ‘Oh this is easy’, and then I burnt them; which is pretty typical. The best thing is they are still soft in the centre and even though the outside is a little burnt, it’s still good.

I got this recipe from Tanya Burr’s cooking book, as I have no idea what I’ve done with the book I had when I was younger which is a shame. I didn’t add the smarties as I figured these would be sweet enough and didn’t need anything extra for taste. Which isn’t wrong as they still taste amazing.

Ingredients:

125g Butter

10 Tablespoons Golden Syrup

100g Light Soft Brown Sugar

250g Porridge Oats

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 celsius, 350 fahrenheit or Gas Mark 4. I used butter to grease the pan which is supposed to be 20cm, but mine is a little bigger hence the corners not being perfect.

Melt the butter in a medium size pan over a low heat. Once melted add the golden syrup and sugar. Continue to heat gently until everything is well combined.

Once combined take the pan off the heat and add the oats, then mix until everything is equally covered.

Then pour the mix in the tray, and shape it, by either by flattening it with a metal spoon or bringing it together with the spoon if your tray is too big.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Once cooled cut into squares and you’re good to go.

That is how you make flapjacks! These are definitely on the simple side, and they taste amazing.

Have you ever made flapjacks before?

Thank you for reading!

    I’ve never tried making flapjacks, but might give them a go, just need to figure out a healthier way to make them as I’m trying to completely cut out sugar <3
