Flapjacks

Flapjacks

These always remind me of being a child, my mum would make a huge tray of them. Brings back lovely memories of helping my mum in the kitchen as a child and enjoying licking cake bowls. 😊

Flapjacks

Ingredients
12oz Butter
4oz Brown Sugar
2tbsp Golden Syrup
16oz Rolled Oats

Method
Preheat the oven to 160degrees. Lightly grease a 20cm square baking dish.

On a low heat, in a large pan melt the butter, sugar and syrup together until the sugar is completely dissolved. Keep stirring it so it doesn’t catch on the bottom. When it is melted take off the heat.

Measure out the oats and add to the pan and mix thoroughly so all the oats are well coated.

Place in the prepared baking dish. Spread out evenly and level out so it is equal depth to ensure even cooking.

Bake for 20mins until lightly coloured on top.
Allow to cool completely before portioning and serving.

For a variation you can melt some chocolate on top too. Enjoy!

  1. This is brilliant! My mum has a very similar recipe written in a book just like yours and my favourite part was (and still is) eating the uncooked mixture. Yours look delicious!

    • I love eating the mixture too!! Old cookery books are great, lovely how you can pass them onto different generations and each family member adding their own recipes. Thanks for reading 🙂
