Super easy and tasty flapjack recipe

This flapjack recipe is really simple and a perfect quick treat. It takes very little time to prepare and really is super easy! My daughter loves making these and has perfected her recipe over the last month (and I’m not complaining!) She also took these photos for today’s blog post. I wasn’t kidding when I said she would be taking over soon 😉

We’ve been incorporating baking into our new home school timetable most days. This way we have been practising maths – weighing and measurement, science (baking is science after all), food and nutrition and of course, photography – both taking and editing! Not bad for a 30 minute home lesson 😉

flapjack ingredients
Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together over a low heat
mixing flapjack ingredients
Pour the melted butter and sugar mix over the oats in a large bowl. Stir until all of the oats are coated
Spread out the flapjack mixture into a tin – we use a brownie tin and flatten it down well. We line the tin with grease-proof paper to help make flapjack removal easier!
Once out of the oven, leave to cool for five minutes and then cut the flapjack into pieces. It’s much easier to do this when it’s still warm, if you leave it to completely cool it tends to crumble
Enjoy! If you want to make them extra special, add a little drizzle of melted chocolate across the top. These were the perfect consistency, chewy and not too hard, and full of buttery goodness, yummy!

You can mix them up a bit and add in chopped nuts or dried fruit if you want to, raisins work well, or dried cranberries are a good alternative.

Have you seen my new YouTube channel? I’m uploading weekly videos (check out last weeks here) and it would mean a lot if you could pop over and hit the subscribe button. If there’s anything you’d like to see please feel free to get in touch – it’s a work in progress and I’m open to ideas!
