My boys love this recipe for flapjacks they oaty, soft, crunchy, chewy, and not only tastes lovely they smell lush too!
I make these for my boys pack lunch boxes and they do last all week but only if daddy doesn’t pinch them and take them to work with him.
125g (4oz) Butter
125g (4oz) mixture of Demerara Sugar and Light brown Caster Sugar
2tbsp Golden Syrup
275g (10oz) Rolled Oats
1 Banana Mashed Up
1 8in square tin, buttered
Wooden spoon and Tablespoon
1. Preheat the oven at 180c/gas mark 4 Put the butter and sugar in a pan and melt together with the syrup
2. Mix the oats in with the buttery syrup mixture, until all of the oats are coated then add in the mashed up banana, combine together
3. Spread the mixture into a 8in square pan (buttered), press it down with the back of a spoon.
4. Place into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Take out and allow to cool down in the pan.
Once cooled place on a wire rack or some baking paper to cool some more.
5. Cut up into squares and store away.
If you don’t fancy a banana flapjack just replace it with cherries, raisins, mixed fruit, chocolate chips or coconut. You could even add a layer of chocolate on to the top whilst the flapjack is cooling in the tin.
