Fabulous Flapjack

Fabulous Flapjack

I wasn’t in the mood for a big and fancy bake the other day and I had some spare oatmeal in the cupboard that had been sat there a while not getting used up so I decided to make some simple yet satisfying golden syrup flapjacks.


150g butter

75g demerara sugar

3 tbsp lyles golden syrup

250g rolled oats (porridge oats) I used mornflake stone ground

Makes 9-12 pieces.

  1. Preheat oven to 180 °c (160°c fan) gas mark 4.
  2. Grease a square tin. (You could also line it)
  3. Put the butter,sugar and syrup into a pan and heat gently until everything’s melted.
  4. Stir in the oats.
  5. Turn into the tin.
  6. Press the mixture firmly with the back of a spoon and level out evenly.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until edges are golden.
  8. Remove from the oven, cool for 10 minutes then mark into 12 pieces whilst warm.
  9. Completely cool before turning out .

They will keep upto a week in an airtight container.

Fuel your day with a flapjack and a cup of tea on a morning or a pick me up in the afternoon!

Sweet bakes
