I love flapjacks, the warm buttery flavour and tender crumbly texture of the oats... Just perfect. They're so simple to make too, with basic store cupboard ingredients you probably have on hand right now. This recipe calls for making them stovetop before whacking them in the oven to cook completely which is a totally different method than I used for my Peanut butter and Honey Flapjacks but hey, I'm up for trying anything once.

Makes 9-12

  • 225g butter,
  • 225g light brown sugar
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 350g rolled oats (jumbo oats)
Preheat the oven to 150 C and grease a 9" square tin
Melt the butter with the sugar and syrup in a saucepan over a medium-low heat,
stirring to avoid sticking and burning until the butter has melted completely
Remove from the heat and stir in the oats,ensuring they are well coated in the mixture
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and press down with the back of a spoon
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden on the top
Cool completely then cut into squares with a knife and remove from the tin (being careful not to break them up)
Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!

Also, if there are crumbs left over they make fantastic granola for your morning yoghurt!
