dessert or snack
- 300g butter
- 200g soft brown sugar
- 4 tbsp golden syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
- 1 tin condensed milk
- 500g porridge oats
- 1 or 2 bars of chocolate
Flapjacks – Method & Instructions
Pre-heat oven – Gas 5 / 190°C / 375 °F
Melt butter in a pot
Add sugar to the melted butter
Add syrup (stand your spoon in a cup of hot water so the spoon gets hot. It helps syrup come off the spoon)
Add condensed milk
Cook on a medium heat
When it starts to boil cook for 1 minute
In a large bowl put in porridge oats
Pour your toffee mixture into the bowl of porridge oats and mix well with a wooden spoon making sure all porridge oats are covered with the mixture
Put greaseproof paper onto a baking tin
Pour flapjack mixture into baking tin and spread to about 2 inches thick
Place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes
When it comes out the oven cut into squares of individual portions while it is still warm
Let the flapjacks cool for at least 15 minutes before eating
You can of course eat the flapjacks like this or you can put melted chocolate on them
Melt your chocolate of choice on a bain-marie (pot of hot water with bowl over the hot water and place chocolate in bowl)
Once the chocolate has melted use a tablespoon to spread the chocolate on the flapjacks
See the YouTube video for ideas of how to decorate your flapjacks with chocolate
If you have the patience at this stage you can let chocolate harden but if like me you can’t wait just eat and enjoy as they are
Have fun making your flapjacks and enjoy eating them
